Hepatoblastoma (liver cancer)
Hepatoblastoma is a rare tumor that originates in cells in the liver. This cancer primarily affects children from infancy to about 5 years of age. Treatment for this cancer is aimed at removing as much of the tumor as possible. Liver tissue can regenerate after a portion is removed.
