hi my son has isolated hemihypertrophy with no other syndrome linked, is he still at risk of tumours
In fact, these children are at increased risk for some tumors.
Tumors of the abdomen, wilms tumor and tumors of the kidneys. Also to some extent, liver tumors.
The older he is, the less likely he has any of this.
However, his follow up with his doctor is all important.
OK, so that is an initial answer….
