Rectal Cancer Treatment:

Is there a difference between colon cancer and rectal cancer?

Yes. Colon cancer occurs in the large intestine (colon), the lower part of your digestive system. Rectal cancer is specific to the last several inches of the colon. Many times you may hear them referred to collectively as colorectal cancer.

What does rectal cancer treatment usually involve?

Each instance of rectal cancer is unique, and our team will diagnose your condition to determine the best course of treatment best for you.  Some of the probable treatment options include the following:

  • Surgery: This rectal cancer treatment is often performed to remove cancerous tumors and affected parts of the rectom.
  • Radiation: This rectal cancer treatment uses high-energy waves to kill cancerous cells. It is often used after surgery to eliminate any remaining cancer cells.
  • Chemotherapy: This rectal cancer treatment uses medications that kill cancerous cells. It is often delivered orally or intravenously, and affects the entire body. It may be used in combination with other treatments to ensure the complete eradication of cancerous cells, and reduce the chance for recurrence.
