Full TitleEffect of treatment modality on psychosocial functioning of survivors of unilateral retinoblastoma
PurposeThe purpose of this study is to see how treatment for retinoblastoma in one eye affects quality of life in survivors of this cancer who had chemotherapy (injected into the eye) or surgery to remove the eye. Researchers will ask participants about their physical and emotional health and ability to perform daily activities. They want to determine if there are any differences between these treatments with respect to their effect on quality of life. It is hoped that this information will help doctors provide better care for children with retinoblastoma in the future and better follow-up care for survivors of this cancer.
This study will include children and adolescents (ages 5-17) who received treatment for retinoblastoma in one eye between 2006 and 2016, with treatment completed at least one year ago.
