Study of Kidney Tumors in Younger Patients

Description

Seeking Male & Female patients age 0-30 years who have a kidney tumor (an abnormal growth of cells or tissues in the kidney that may be benign or malignant) or a tumor outside the kidney called a malignant rhabdoid tumor or an extrarenal Wilms tumor.

Overview

The purpose of this study is to find out information about the tumor so that the doctor can find the best treatment with the least side effects and to learn more about kidney tumors so that doctors can find out how to treat subjects who have these tumors.

What we're hoping for

We are hoping that the information learned from these studies and from future research tests will benefit other subjects with kidney tumors in the future.
