Retinoblastoma is a rare and fast growing type of eye cancer that affects babies and young children. Children with retinoblastoma can begin to lose their sight with the tumour impairing their vision. Around one child a week is diagnosed with retinoblastoma in the UK.
98% of children will survive retinoblastoma but more than half will lose an eye in order to stop the cancer spreading. Early diagnosis is vital to save a child’s eyes, sight and life.
