6 doctors agree
In brief: Inherited tumor
This is a tumor of the photoreceptive cells present at birth or soon afterwards.
It is malignant, serious and needs immediate attention. While many are in families, some can be a new mutation or a non-in herited, non-germ line mutation. All need serious treatment along with genetic counseling.
