Tumors can be formed in any organ throughout life. The fetal period is no exception to this fact, and it is important to diagnose these tumors as soon as possible to provide timely care to patients. If management is halted, tumors can cause complications in delivery, child development and even death. In this chapter, we discuss the diagnosis and management of several common fetal tumors. We also overview possible future directions in the management of tumors found during the fetal period.
