Retinoblastoma

Retinoblastoma (Rb) is a rare cancer of the eye which presents in babies and young children mainly up to the age of five, the majority of whom will have at least one eye removed to save their lives.

As health visitors play such an important role in the early stages of a child’s life, it is crucial that you are aware of the signs and symptoms of retinoblastoma (Rb). Your actions can help to ensure a swift referral pathway for suspected cases.

This factsheet, authored by Petra Maxwell, Information & Research Manager, Childhood Eye Cancer Trust at the Royal London Hospital, advises health visitors what to look out for.
