Pediatric tumours are the formation of abnormal cellular growth in the urinary system. These mainly affect infants and young children up to the age of 5 years. They are both malignant and benign. The most common tumours afflicting the kids are Wilma's tumour, hepatoblastoma and much more. It is very rare for the kid to be afflicted by this ailment as it's very rare.
It affects the kid's brain as well as kidney and urinary tracts.
There is no known cause of pediatric tumours but some of these have been recognised as the most prominent causes:
The tumour grows only in the kidneys and usually affects only one kidney of the child. In this, the kidney cells turn cancerous and spread rapidly in and around the kidney. Wilma’s tumour is the most common kidney cancer affecting kids.
Our specialist urologist follows these steps to diagnose the formation of the tumour in the kids. This is the best way to detect the tumour before it becomes grave.
This is recommended when the tumour is small in size and has spread in a very small area of the child’s kidney. The treatment we do includes:
Chemotherapy- This kills the dangerous cancerous cells in the kidney. It stops its further progression of the child’s kidney. It’s also performed after the surgery for its complete removal.
Radiation therapy- A high powered machine is focused on the cancer cells in the child’s kidney. The radiation emitted from this machine kills the cancer cells but works only in stage 3 cancer and above.
This is the only way to remove the tumour from the child’s body. The success of the treatment is dependent on the extent of the area covered by the tumours.
Partial nephrectomy- This is the aptest treatment if a small part of the kidney has a tumour. We insert the laparoscopic tube with a camera and tools. The tools cut the tumour and healthy tissue around it and heal it. The doctor sees the whole process on the screen in front and operates.
Radical nephrectomy- This is more grave in nature as the whole kidney of the child is removed. Along with the kidney also the healthy tissues and ureters are removed to eliminate the traces of cancerous cells.
Wilma's tumour like all tumour is curable when detected in an early stage and The best pediatric urologist in India uses various techniques to heal Wilma's tumour. The success of the treatment depends on the gravity of the situation and it is curable around 80% of the time.
The best pediatric urologist uses many techniques to diagnose Wilma's tumour. Before any diagnosis, the doctor asks about the family history of Wilma's tumour in the family. After that he suggests some more tests to check the level of tumours in the kidney.
Seven warning signs you should know about the brain tumor in children :
Pilocytic astrocytoma (grade 1): This slow-growing tumor is the most common brain tumor found in children.
On average, the five-year survival rate (which is the number of children surviving more than five years after treatment) in all types of brain and spinal tumor (including both malignant and benign) is very good: 3 out of 4 children suffering from brain tumors will live for more than 5.
Grade I brain tumors can be cured if they are completely removed by surgery. Grade II - Tumor cells grow and spread more slowly than grade III and IV tumor cells. They can spread to nearby tissue and come back (come back). Some tumors can become high-grade tumors.

Grade I - brain Tumours can be cured if they are completely removed by surgery. Grade II - Tumor cells grow and spread more slowly than grade III and IV tumor cells. They can spread to nearby tissue and come back (come back). Some tumors can become high-grade tumors.
The probability of developing this type of Tumours during a person's lifetime is less than 1%. Brain tumors account for 85% to 90% of all primary central nervous system (CNS) tumors. About 3,460 children under the age of 15 will also be diagnosed with brain or CNS tumors this year.
