Featured: Retinoblastoma Main Article

Retinoblastoma is an ocular cancer that occurs most often in children under 5 years of age. About 40% of all cases are inherited. Symptoms of retinoblastoma include eye pain, redness, dilated pupils, white pupils, and eyes that do not move or focus in the same direction. An eye exam, imaging tests, and lab tests are used to diagnose this type of cancer. Retinoblastoma may be treated with photocoagulation, cryotherapy, chemotherapy, radiation, and enucleation. Early detection is the best prevention for retinoblastoma.
