Most kids with wilms tumor are cured, relapse usually occurs within the first 2 years. A small percentage of patients suffer late side effects, sometimes many years after treatment such as bone growth, infertility (rare) and change in heart/lung performance, there is also a slight risk of developing another type of cancer later in life.

Well, you have been ca free of a recurance of wilms this long- I'd say you are out of the woods.

Now, you still have normal risks of Breast, ovarian etc,

do regular self exams, see your doctor on a regular basis.

Exercise and eat plenty of fruit and vegis.

Barring any problematic chemo treatments or xray therepy, you should be as ok as the rest of the population.
