Solid Tumor Program
Solid tumors in children are often very different from tumors in adults. They are also much rarer. The best care involves specialists in these rare tumors working closely together as a team. The treatment plan will integrate chemotherapy, surgery, radiation therapy, stem cell transplant and immunotherapy in ways that best fit the patient's needs.
