Who treats central nervous system embryonal tumors?

Central nervous system (CNS) embryonal tumors are treated by a team of specialists who are managed by a pediatric oncologist, or a doctor who treats children with cancer. Depending on your child's treatment plan, any number of several specialists may be involved in their care. These include a neurosurgeon, neurologist, radiation oncologist, or a psychologist, who will help treat any psychological issues that arise in dealing with this disease. All of these healthcare practitioners should specialize in treating children, as treatment for children with cancer is different than adults.
