Hepatoblastoma is an extremely rare type of cancer with cells similar to fetal liver cells. It forms in children, usually younger than 4 years old. Typically, around two out of three children who have these tumors are successfully treated with surgery and chemotherapy. Hepatoblastoma tumor cells are harder to treat if they have spread outside the liver.
