Kidney Tumors Program | Conditions We Treat

The Kidney Tumor Program at Dana-Farber/Boston Children's Cancer and Blood Disorders Center treats these conditions:

  • Wilms’ tumor
  • clear cell sarcoma
  • rhabdoid tumor
  • congenital mesoblastic nephroma
  • renal cell carcinoma
  • nephroblastomatosis

Through Dana-Farber/Boston Children's, children with kidney tumors receive treatment at both Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Boston Children's Hospital. Our cancer specialists from Dana-Farber work closely with the pediatric experts at Boston Children's to ensure every aspect of your child's health is overseen before, during and after their treatment period.

Your child’s treatment team will include:

  • pediatric oncologists with expertise in the treatment of kidney tumors
  • pediatric surgeons
  • pediatric radiologists
  • pathologists
  • radiotherapists
  • social workers
  • experienced nursing staff

Members of our Kidney Tumor Program also oversee laboratory and clinical research designed to improve understanding and treatment of childhood kidney tumors.

Because Dana-Farber/Boston Children's is the regional Phase I center for the Children's Oncology Group, a collaborative research organization dedicated to improving the treatment of childhood cancers, our center offers treatments unavailable at other regional institutions. We also collaborate with other pediatric centers across the country to offer unique treatment options.
