Rare Tumors Program
Our physicians are focused on family-centered care: From your first visit, you’ll work with a team of professionals who are committed to supporting all of your family’s physical and psychosocial needs.
Here at Dana-Farber/Children's Hospital Cancer Center, a 60-year partnership between Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Boston Children's Hospital, patients receive individualized care to treat every aspect of their condition from an expert team of subspecialists, including:
- pediatric oncologists
Other pediatric care providers, including other subspecialists, nutritionists, physical and occupational therapists, psychologists and social workers, are available for consultation, whenever they are needed.
We consider you and your child integral parts of the care team, and not simply recipients of care. You and your team will work together to customize a plan of care for your child.
Our Rare Tumors Program treats children with the following conditions. For information on a particular condition, please select one from the list below:
- liver tumors
- germ-cell tumors of the brain
- colorectal cancer
- nasopharyngeal carcinoma
- adrenocortical carcinoma
- thyroid carcinoma
Children treated in the Rare Tumors Program also benefit from the work of our experienced basic, translational and clinical researchers, who are striving to understand the scientific causes of rare cancers, which results in the introduction of new treatment options.
