  • Rhabdomyosarcoma












  • Rhabdomyosarcoma

    Rhabdomyosarcoma

    Rhabdomyosarcoma is a fast-growing, highly malignant tumor which accounts for over half of the soft tissue sarcomas in children. Less frequently, other soft tissue sarcomas are found in children: fibrosarcoma, mesenchymoma, synovial sarcoma, and liposarcoma.

    Signs and Symptoms

    Lump or swelling, firm and painless to touch, in the extremities, the groin area, or the vaginal area. Can occur anywhere.

    -Drooping eyelids, swelling of the eye, protruding eyeball, rapid vision changes, hoarseness, difficulty in swallowing

    Abdominal pain which persists for more than a week.

    Keep a close eye on your child for small lumps that do not disappear in a week or so, but instead keep growing larger. Especially watch the pelvic region and the arms and legs. Also watch for any changes in the eyes. Rhabdomyosarcoma is a rapidly growing tumor and the sooner treatment begins, the more favorable is the prognosis

    Sometimes this type of cancer is slow to grow.

    Example: Childs shoulder - The tumor can grow over a period of months, making it harder to notice. Sometimes you get use to your child and the way they look. It is so important to have Pediatrician that can notice these changes. An exam every 3 months can help keep track of any changes in your child’s body.
