In brief: Fight for survival

Hepatoblastoma-most common cancerous liver tumor affecting children from infancy to about 5 years of age.
As with any cancer, prognosis and long-term survival vary greatly from child to child.Prompt medical attention, aggressive therapy are important for the best prognosis.Continuous follow-up care is very important because side effects of radiation/chemo may occur, as well as second malignancies.
