Cancer is the leading cause of death worldwide with 8.2 million cancer related deaths in 2012 estimated by World Health Organization (WHO). Retinoblastoma is a cancer that starts in the retina, the very back part of the eye. It is the most common type of eye cancer in children. During the early stages of development, the eyes have cells called retinoblasts that divide into new cells and fill the retina. At a certain point, these cells stop dividing and develop into mature retinal cells. Rarely, something goes wrong with this process. Instead of maturing into special cells that detect light, some retinoblasts continue to divide and grow out of control, forming a cancer known as retinoblastoma. Retinoblastoma starts with a mutation in a gene called the retinoblastoma (RB1) gene. Depending upon the changes in RB1 gene, retinoblastomas are two types, they are congenital (hereditary) retinoblastoma and sporadic (non-hereditary) retinoblastoma. Retinoblastoma is a rare disease. 9 in 10 children suffering from retinoblastoma are cured with the existing treatments.
