There is a cure for neuroblastoma, but the process is long and difficult. The earlier neuroblastoma is identified and treated, the greater the chance that the cancer can be cured. Neuroblastoma can be cured, depending on the stage, by surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, retinoid therapy, or a combination of any of these treatments. However, there is always a chance that neuroblastoma can come back even after being cured.
