My guess is Wilm's tumor: Unilateral

Neuroblastoma: Usually midline
Hepatoblastoma: Would be on the right
ALL: Would have Hepatosplenomegaly (right and left "masses")
Hodgkin's: Could present with infiltration of abdominal lymph-nodes, but the peak incidence is in adolescents and old people i think, not in 3-year olds
