How can my child manage childhood kidney tumors on a daily basis?

For the child, daily management of childhood kidney tumors is often focused on relieving stress. Because Wilms tumors and other childhood kidney tumors usually occur in young children-often under the age of 5 - daily management for children should focus on things that will get your child's mind off the treatment and recovery. However, treatment and recovery are two important aspects of your child's health, so daily management should also include getting the right treatment, following doctors' advice for nutrition and other care during treatment, and getting the right follow-up care. Make sure your child tells you about any new symptoms or other issues during recovery.
