Rhabdomyosarcoma is a cancer in muscles attached to bones. Though rare in adults, it can occur, and treatment may include surgery, radiation and chemotherapy.

Overview

Our surgical oncologists may use minimally invasive, video-assisted surgery, which minimizes pain and recovery time. Our radiation oncology team also may perform radiation therapy to kill or shrink cancer cells, while minimizing the effect on other organs. Our medical oncology specialist will manage your chemotherapy, which could occur before and after surgery.
