retinoblastoma diagnosis
From Heather40, April 1, 2005
hello. I had never heard of retinoblastoma until a few moments ago. I was researching on the net any possible/suspected link between IVF and cancer, which led me to articles (albeit disputed/discussed in the medical community) about retinoblastoma. My daughter, aged 2, conceived by IVF, has just been given her 1st pair of glasses as she is very long-sighted and also has a squint. I don't think, though, that there's anything unusual about her pupils (except the angle of focus). She was seen by the Orthoptics Dept at our local hospital. If there was any likelihood of a retinoblastoma, would this have been picked up? I'm in UK and I can't call the hospital until Monday, so my mind is running away with me...any help or advice would be really appreciated. Thanks so much
