Solid Tumors


    Solid tumors are lumps of sick cells stuck together. They may develop in many parts of the body including the brain, kidneys, liver and bones. These sick cells crowd out healthy cells and prevent normal function of the affected organ. Common types of solid tumor cancers include neuroblastoma, Ewing sarcoma and Wilms tumors.
