Treatments for rectal cancer
Treatments offered for rectal cancer depend on the stage and location of the tumour.
Radiation therapy, including chemoradiation, and surgery are the most common treatments used for rectal cancer. Chemotherapy (without radiation) and targeted therapy may also be used in some cases.
