RATIONALE: Surgery alone may be effective in treating children with neuroblastoma.
PURPOSE: Phase III trial to study the effectiveness of surgery alone in treating children who have neuroblastoma.

|Experimental: Treatment 1 - Asymptomatic - no immediate chemotherapy||Procedure: conventional surgery Radiation: radiation therapy|
|Experimental: Symptomatic - immediate chemotherapy||Biological: filgrastim Biological: sargramostim Drug: carboplatin Drug: cyclophosphamide Drug: doxorubicin hydrochloride Drug: etoposide Procedure: adjuvant therapy Procedure: conventional surgery Radiation: radiation therapy|
- Estimate the 3 year survival rate for low risk asymptomatic stage 2A/2B patients who are treated with surgery aloneThe primary objective is to estimate the 3 year survival rate for low risk asymptomatic stage 2A/2B patients who are treated with surgery alone. Under the assumption that about 90% of the low risk 2A/2B patients will be asymptomatic, and 10% of these will be lost to follow up, the projected sample size will enable estimation of the survival rate with a standard error less than .03. This sample size will also provide sufficient power for the sequential monitoring plan (see below) for this subgroup of patients.
