Retinoblastoma is a disease in which cancer cells form in the tissues of the retina.  It is the most common intraocular malignancy in children, although it can occur at any age. It may present in one eye or in both eyes. Retinoblastoma rarely spreads from the eye to nearby tissue or other parts of the body.


HEROS Clinic: beating cancer for a lifetime

The HEROS clinic broke new ground when it became the first in the state to offer comprehensive guidance for adults and children who had survived pediatric cancer.  Under the directorship of Dr. Nina Kadan-Lottick, our survivorship program has national prominence and is recognized as a model in which patients are monitored for recurrence of their original cancer, emergence of new cancer, and occurrence of long-term effects of therapy.
