Treatment for Metastatic Sarcoma in Children

Sarcoma is a relatively rare type of cancer that grows in connective tissue. There are more than 50 kinds of sarcoma, but they can be categorized into two main groups: osteosarcoma (bone) and soft tissue sarcoma, such as Ewing sarcoma, which affects the muscle and cartilage around the bone.

Osteosarcoma is the most common type of bone cancer in children and young adults. Typically, it occurs during the teenage years. Ewing sarcoma, which is very rare, is detected most commonly in adolescents between the ages of 10 and 20. If the sarcoma spreads to another organ in the body from where it began, it is called metastatic sarcoma. Medical treatments are administered to relieve the symptoms and slow the spread of metastatic cancer.

At Sheba, highly qualified specialists review each case of metastatic sarcoma thoroughly to design an effective therapy program. Oncologists, pediatric oncologists, hematologists, radiologists, orthopedic surgeons, and surgical oncologists use advanced technologies and premier skills to provide quick diagnostic results and prompt treatments.

Ewing’s Sarcoma New Treatment

Metastatic Sarcoma Treatment in Israel

Our multidisciplinary team of physicians collaborates to custom-tailor every program for metastatic sarcoma treatment in Israel. To optimize and personalize each patient’s therapy, we consider the specific type, stage, and location of the cancer, as well as how the rest of the body is functioning. Treatment options include:

Surgery

surgical procedures are used to obtain a biopsy sample and to remove the tumor. Various types of surgery can be used for metastatic sarcoma, depending on the size and location of the tumor; precise imaging tests will be done prior to surgery to define the extent of the tumor.

Chemotherapy

our experienced oncologists will choose the most suitable chemotherapy drug(s) for each child, and we will adjust or change the medication as necessary.

Targeted Therapy

these drugs identify and attack specific cancer cells without causing damage to nearby healthy cells; many different types of targeted therapy drugs are available, and we will determine the most effective individualized options.

Bone Marrow Transplant / Stem Cell Transplant

usually an option only for children with high-risk neuroblastoma; chemotherapy and/or surgery are performed before the transplant and children with neuroblastoma typically receive their own stem cells.

Radiation therapy

conventional radiotherapy is not usually recommended for treating osteosarcoma because extremely high doses are needed. However, innovative, more precise forms of targeted radiation may be used. In contrast, Ewing sarcoma tumors are especially sensitive to radiation, so radiotherapy is often used in conjunction with chemotherapy. .
