Rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS) is rare cancer that forms in the soft tissues, particularly in skeletal muscle tissue or sometimes in hollow organs such as the bladder or uterus. RMS can occur at any age, but particularly affects children. It may occur in all three types of skeletal muscles; voluntary, smooth muscle and Cardiac muscle. Some mysterious DNA mutation is a major cause of this cancer appearance in the body. The signs of its existence depend on the type of affected skeletal muscles like if cardiac muscle is affected the person may feel the clear signs of altered blood flow rate and heartbeat. It also affects the normal functions of the heart. Although RMS can occur anywhere in the body, it is more likely that it begins with the following:

Head and neck area

Urinary system, like the bladder

Reproductive system such as the vagina, uterus or testicles

Arms and legs

The prognosis and treatment decisions depend on the type of rhabdomyosarcoma, where it begins, the size of the tumor, and whether cancer has spread or not. Treatment may include surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy. Significant progress in the treatment of rhabdomyosarcomas has significantly improved the results. Once treatment is complete, individuals should monitor for life any possible late effects of intensive chemotherapy and radiation therapy.
