If you have a suspected or diagnosed cancer, we are here to help. Call (877) RUSH-KID (787-4543) to schedule an initial visit or an appointment for a second opinion.

Diagnosis

The first step in effective treatment of pediatric cancers is to accurately diagnose the disease. At the Rush University Cancer Center, physicians use the most advanced methods, including imaging and biopsy, to determine each patient’s condition. Diagnostic methods include the following:

  • Biopsy
  • CT scan
  • MRI
  • Ultrasound

Treatment

Rush offers a full range of treatments for pediatric cancers, from standard therapies to innovative treatment options, and new options are being explored every day.

Clinical Trials

Physicians at Rush are involved in clinical trials evaluating new treatment options for pediatric cancers. Through clinical trials, some patients can access experimental treatments that are not otherwise available.

Resources

  • The Cancer Integrative Medicine Program offers complementary and alternative medicine to accompany your medical treatment plan.
  • The Child Life and Creative Arts Program uses therapeutic play, art, education and other forms of self-expression help children and their families cope with illnesses and hospitalization.
  • Rush offers a patient navigator to assess individual patient needs and provide information about available treatments, community services and programs.
  • In these videos, doctors at Rush who treat patients with pediatric cancers offer personal insights on their specialty and their philosophies of care.
