In brief: Yes

While the majority of wilms tumor occurs in the pediatric age population, adults, even the elderly, can get wilms (though it is very rare).
Adults with wilms are more difficult to treat than kids.

In brief: Wilms Tumor

Most common in kids ages 3-4, rare after age 5 although it has occured.
. Now it has a pretty good prognosis if caught and treated early.
