Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/07/2018 -- Rhabdomyosarcoma is a most common type of sarcoma in children that develops in body's soft tissues, most commonly in muscles. It accounts around 3.5% of total childhood cancers. Sarcoma is cancer of connective tissue (cartilage or tendon), soft tissue (muscle), or bone. It can affect the neck, head, vagina, bladder, legs, arms, trunk, or any other body part. Children can develop rhabdomyosarcoma at any age; however, most of the cases have been recorded in children aged between 2 and 6 and in teens aged between 15 and 19. It is more common in boys than girls. Exact disease cause is unknown; however, children suffering from inherited diseases such as pleuropulmonary blastoma, Costello syndrome, Li-Fraumeni syndrome, Noonan syndrome and neurofibromatosis type 1 are more susceptible to rhabdomyosarcoma. Moreover, children who were larger or had high birth weight have increased risk of developing rhabdomyosarcoma. Most common symptoms of rhabdomyosarcoma include bulging of eye, trouble in urination or bowel movements, headache, blood in urine, and bleeding in the throat, nose, vagina, or rectum.
