The Solid Tumor Center at Dana-Farber/Boston Children's Cancer and Blood Disorders Center treats children and teens with a variety of solid malignancies, from bone and soft-tissue tumors to liver and kidney tumors. Our doctors provide unparalleled expertise in the diagnosis, treatment and management of these diseases.
Highlights of our Solid Tumor Center include:
A genetic test can explain why a child or young adult developed cancer and can help to predict whether he/she is at risk for other cancers.
Providing care and advocacy for survivors of childhood cancer through ongoing education, support and research on the long-term effects of cancer treatments.
Social workers, psychologists and resource specialists offering help with the social, emotional, and psychological aspects of caring for children with cancer.
As a teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School, our physicians are passing on their expertise to the next generation of pediatric hematologists and oncologists.
