Rectal Cancer


Rectal Cancer

The rectum is part of the digestive system. Cancer that begins in the rectum is called rectal cancer, a disease in which malignant (cancer) cells form in the tissues of the rectum. Tumors of the rectum often spread locally and invade surrounding tissues, such as the bladder, reproductive organs, and pelvic bones.
