Rhabdomyosarcoma Diagnosis

At Penn Medicine's Abramson Cancer Center we are highly experienced and use the most advanced and least invasive techniques to diagnose and treat rhabdomyosarcoma. Here, we have the most experienced sarcoma experts in the Philadelphia region. Our physicians are supported by a complete cancer program that features the latest technology in diagnosis, and most current sarcoma research.

Screening for Rhabdomyosarcoma

Currently, there are no standard rhabdomyosarcoma screening recommendations for the general public like mammograms for breast cancer or colonoscopies for colon cancer.

However, patients at increased risk, or those with an inherited condition that puts them at a greater risk for developing rhabdomyosarcoma may benefit from specific diagnostic testing.

Navigating a rhabdomyosarcoma diagnosis and treatment options can be difficult. If you receive a cancer diagnosis, our cancer nurses are available and ready to help connect you with the right physician.

To connect with a cancer nurse at Penn Medicine, call 800-789-7366 (PENN).

Staging Rhabdomyosarcoma
