Rhabdomyosarcoma in Children

  • Rhabdomyosarcoma is a cancerous tumor that grows in the soft tissues of the body, particularly in the muscles that attach to bone and help the body to move.

    • The most common sites for this tumor to be found include the head, neck, bladder, vagina, arms, leg, and trunk.

    • Rhabdomyosarcoma can also be found in places where skeletal muscles are absent or very small, such as in the prostate, middle ear and bile duct system.

    • The cancer cells associated with this disease can spread to other areas of the body.
