Rhabdomyosarcoma care at Mayo Clinic

Mayo Clinic specialists provide expert, compassionate care for people with rhabdomyosarcoma.

Advanced diagnosis and treatment

Mayo Clinic doctors participate in cooperative research groups that give you access to clinical trials testing the latest advances in rhabdomyosarcoma treatment.

Mayo Clinic doctors will work with you to review all of your treatment options and choose the treatment that best suits your needs and goals. The range of treatments offered to people with rhabdomyosarcoma includes surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy.

Mayo Clinic also offers proton beam therapy — a newer form of radiation therapy — at its campuses in Arizona and Minnesota. Children, young adults and those with cancers located close to critical organs and body structures may benefit from this highly targeted precision beam therapy. Mayo Clinic's Proton Beam Therapy Program features intensity-modulated proton beam therapy with pencil beam scanning that allows radiation oncologists to destroy the cancer while sparing healthy tissue.
