Rectal Cancer

Rectal cancer is a type of cancer that forms in the cells of the rectum, the last section of the large intestine and a crucial part of the body’s digestive system.

Frequent indicators of rectal cancer include blood in the stool or changes in bowel habits, such as constipation or diarrhea.

Doctors in the GW Cancer Center’s Gastrointestinal Cancer Program use cutting-edge immunotherapies and minimally invasive robotic surgery to treat rectal cancer, which is often detected during routine colonoscopies.
