Understanding rectal cancer

Understanding rectal cancer (April 2020)

This booklet is about rectal cancer. The rectum is part of the bowel. We have separate information about small bowel cancer, colon cancer and anal cancer. The booklet explains what rectal cancer is, and how it is diagnosed and treated. It also talks about your feelings when you are diagnosed with cancer and has practical advice on dealing with work and finances. When we mention bowel cancer in this booklet, this includes rectal cancer.
