Rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS)

RMS is a rare and aggressive form of soft tissue cancer.  RMS has particularly high incidence amongst infant and adolescent cancer patients.  There is evidence to suggest that sarcomas have a disproportionately high genetic basis, unlike cancers that are clearly very largely due to environmental factors, like lung cancer and skin cancers.
