What is Rectal Cancer?
Rectal cancer is a malignant tumor that originates in the rectum, the last part of the large intestine before the anus. This type of cancer develops when cells in the rectal lining undergo abnormal growth and division, forming a tumor. Rectal cancer shares similarities with colon cancer, often grouped together as colorectal cancer.
Location: The rectum is the final section of the large intestine, connecting to the anus.
Risk Factors: Age, family history, certain genetic conditions, lifestyle factors like smoking, alcohol, lack of exercise and food adulteration can contribute to the development of rectal cancer.
Symptoms: Common signs include changes in bowel habits, blood in the stool, abdominal discomfort, and unexplained weight loss.
Diagnosis: Diagnosis involves imaging tests, colonoscopy, and biopsy to confirm the presence of cancerous cells.
Staging: Determining how far cancer has advanced is staging. It is done by physical examination, CT scan, MRI, CEA & CA-19-9 tests. Sometimes a PET CT may be advised.
Treatment: Treatment options may include surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, targeted therapy, immuno-therapy or a combination, tailored to the stage and characteristics of the cancer.
Importance of Timely Treatment
Early detection and intervention are crucial for successful rectal cancer treatment. Regular screenings and awareness of potential symptoms play a vital role in managing this condition effectively. If you suspect any concerns or exhibit symptoms, consult with a qualified healthcare professional for prompt evaluation and guidance.
