In brief: Rare; but yes...
Neuroblastoma is usually in children; and the most common cancer in infants.
..But unfortunately(and rarely) it can occur in adults, too.

In brief: No
Not in the classic sense.
Neuroblastoma is a solid cancer of infants and children. Adults can get other types of neurogenic tumors, though.
