Node Assessment Program

The Node Assessment Program at Dana-Farber/Boston Children’s Cancer and Blood Disorders Center provides multidisciplinary diagnosis and treatment of lymphadenopathy, a condition characterized by persistent swelling of the lymph nodes. Ours is the first program of its kind in New England offering second opinions, accepting referrals and consulting with other physicians to determine the cause, severity and most appropriate treatments for swollen lymph nodes.

Dana-Farber/Boston Children’s is an integrated pediatric hematology and oncology partnership between Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Boston Children’s Hospital. We offer, in one specialized program, the full spectrum of services that are needed for diagnosis, treatment and ongoing care of even the rarest and hard-to-treat conditions.

Treatment teams in the Node Assessment Program are composed of physicians and surgeons who specialize in diagnosing and treating lymphadenopathy. They are supported by pediatric radiologists, pathologists, hematologists, oncologists, otolaryngologists, infectious disease specialists, allergists and other health-care professionals to ensure the most accurate diagnosis and most appropriate treatment.
