Emerging treatments for cysts
Dana-Farber/Boston Children’s Cancer and Blood Disorders Center researchers are constantly developing new and better treatment options. If cysts formed by the tumor are extremely large and complex, we may utilize certain chemotherapeutic agents, such as Bleomycin, to slow or stop cyst growth by injecting them directly into the cyst themselves. There is relatively limited experience with this technique in North America, but we have used it in a few patients with varying success.
