In the pediatric population, Neuroblastoma is the most common solid malignant tumor, beginning in utero along the sympathetic nervous system. The maturation of neural crest cells determines if an immature cell does not mature, a solid malignant mass can form.

Dependent upon the tumor site and presence of metastasis, with interventions and early detection, the cancer cells will be targeted for removal.
