In brief: Occasionally
Secondary cancer.
Wilms tumor survivors have a small risk of developing another type of cancer within 15 years after wilms tumor was first diagnosed. The most important risk factors are whether treatment included radiation therapy and doxorubicin. Wilms tumor in children can also spread or metastasis thru the bloodstream to the brain, lungs or lymph nodes occasionally in children.
