No: Embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma is a very rare tumor of striated muscle that occurs at times in the spermatic cord, the vagina as sarcoma botroides and in the head and neck area of young children. It is not a tumor found in adults. The most common area is orbit and sinus cavities being sensitive to RT-chemo. It has nothing to do with sweating except if the chemo being given is causing the symptoms.
