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.
Volunteering with the Canadian Cancer Society opened my eyes to just how much work they do for people fighting cancer.
Providing rides to cancer treatment
For more than 50 years, the Canadian Cancer Society’s transportation program has enabled patients to focus their energy on fighting cancer and not on worrying about how they will get to treatment.
