Best Treatment Option - Rectal cancer is a disease when normal cells in the rectum stop functioning properly and begin to grow up abnormally. The tumors begin when normal tissues in the rectum wall forms an adenomatous polyp extending from the rectal wall lining. Since polyps may turn cancerous, one way to prevent rectal cancer is to detect and remove it before they become seriously.
The rectum is located at the end of colon. Rectum is a part of digestive system. The digestive system removes and processes nutrients from food and helps pass waste material out of the body.
