What Patients Say About Cancer Treatment at New Hope
What Is Neuroblastoma?
Battling cancer begins with being armed with essential information about the disease.
Adult neuroblastoma, an extreme case of disease in which malignant tumors form in the sympathetic nervous system. The sympathetic nervous system is part of the autonomic nervous system responsible for controlling several body functions, such as breathing, digestion, heart rate, and blood pressure. Most cases of neuroblastoma begin in the adrenal glands, abdomen, or nerve cells next to the spinal cord (ganglia). Some occur in the neck, chest, or spine.
Adult Neuroblastoma Symptoms
Signs of neuroblastoma vary depending on where the tumor is, its size, whether cancer has spread, and if it is producing hormones. Early or advance neuroblastoma may manifest in:
- Quick bruising or bleeding
- Severe watery diarrhea
- Loss of appetite and weight loss
- Lumps in the abdomen, lower back, chest, or neck
- Bone pain (caused by cancer spreading to the bone)
- Dark circles under or around the eyes
- Bulging eyes and drooping eyelids
- Convulsive muscle movement
- Shortness of breath
- Breathing problems or coughing
- Difficulty swallowing
- Weakness or paralysis of the lower extremities
- Fever, anemia, and high blood pressure
- Swelling of legs or scrotum
- Problems with urination or bowel movements
- Headaches and dizziness
- Weakness or paralysis
- Petechiae (flat, pinpoint, red spots under the skin caused by bleeding)
- Swelling of the stomach, ankles, feet, legs, or scrotum
These symptoms do not always suggest neuroblastoma and may signal a less serious condition. Consult your GP immediately to rule out any health concerns.
Adult Neuroblastoma Causes
Neuroblastoma begins in immature nerve cells (neuroblasts), which a fetus develops during its time in the womb. As the fetus matures, neuroblasts eventually become nerve cells, fibers, and the cells that make up the adrenal glands. Most neuroblasts mature before birth, though some appear in newborns. In most cases, these neuroblasts mature or disappear. Others, however, form a tumor called neuroblastoma.
It is not clear what causes the initial genetic mutation that leads to neuroblastoma. However, people with a family history of neuroblastoma may be more likely to develop the disease.
Detection and Diagnosis
Your general practitioner may order one or more of the following diagnostic tests to find out if you have neuroblastoma and if it has spread:
- Medical history and physical exam
- Blood chemistry studies
- Twenty-four-hour urine test
- Neurological exam
- Bone marrow aspiration and biopsy
- Computed tomography (CT) scan
- Immunohistochemistry study
