Rectal Cancer

The stool is collected in the last part of the large interstine before it is passed through the anus. A small abnormal growth called polyp is seen initially on the rectum that gradually grows. Some are malignant.

Rectal Cancer

It is seen that some patients with rectum cancer have no symptoms. But some symptoms seen are

  • Blood in the stool or in the rectum
  • Diarrhea or constipation
  • Frequent bowel movements
  • A persistent pressure not relieved after bowel movement
  • Severe fatigue and weight loss
  • Anemia

The symptoms described could be due to other medical conditions too. But a consultation with a doctor will help rule out cancer.

  • Assessment of Medical History
  • Physical Examination of affected area
  • Diagnostic Imaging Tests
  • Colonoscopy
  • Biopsy
  • Testing for genetic mutations
  • Surgery: Doctors usually recommend surgery for rectal cancer.
  • Chemotherapy: This procedure involves the administration of anti-cancer drugs to effectively kill the cancerous cells.
  • Radiation Therapy: This therapy is usually used in combination with the above two to stop the recurrence of cancer.
