Wilms Tumor and Other Childhood Kidney Tumors Treatment (PDQ®): Treatment - Patient Information [NCI] - Treatment Options for Wilms Tumor
If a kidney transplant is needed because of kidney problems, it is delayed until 1 to 2 years after treatment is completed and there are no signs or symptoms of cancer.
Check for U.S. clinical trials from NCI's list of cancer clinical trials that are now accepting patients with stage V Wilms tumor. For more specific results, refine the search by using other search features, such as the location of the trial, the type of treatment, or the name of the drug. Talk with your child's doctor about clinical trials that may be right for your child. General information about clinical trials is available from the NCI Web site.
Wilms Tumor in Adults
There is no standard treatment for adults with Wilms tumor. Pediatric surgeons and oncologists are often part of the team that plans treatment because the treatments used for children may also be used for adults.
