Rectal Cancer​

Rectal Cancer

More than 300 clinical trials are currently accepting participants diagnosed with Rectal Cancer.

Rectal cancer is a type of cancer that originates in the rectum, the final segment of the large intestine. The rectum starts at the end of the colon and extends to the narrow passage leading to the anus. Rectal cancer, along with colon cancer (which starts in the colon), are collectively termed "colorectal cancer." While they share many similarities, including their origin in the large intestine and some common risk factors and symptoms, there are important differences in their treatment approaches.
