What Is Rectal Cancer?

Fighting cancer begins with being armed with essential information about the disease.

You have probably heard of “colorectal cancer,” but colon cancer and rectal cancer are not the same. The rectum is the last 12 centimeters of the large intestine (colon) closest to the anus. Rectal carcinoma arises from the lining of the rectum, whereas colon cancer can start anywhere else in the colon. When colon cancer and rectal cancer occur together, the disorder is called colorectal cancer.

While colon cancer is more common, tumors can emerge in the rectum alone. The disease manifests in rectal bleeding, abdominal pain, and other distressing symptoms. Early diagnosis and treatment are key factors in improving rectal cancer prognosis and life expectancy.

Rectal Cancers We Treat at New Hope Unlimited

Most cases of rectal cancer are adenocarcinomas. These are cancers of the cells that cover the inside surface of the rectum. The types of rectal cancer are:

Carcinoid Tumors

These slow-growing cancers can occur in several places throughout the body, including the hormone-producing cells in the intestines.

Lymphomas

Lymphomas are cancers of the immune system. They often begin in the lymph nodes, but can also develop in the rectum.

Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumors

These soft tissue sarcomas can emerge anywhere in the digestive tract, although it is extremely rare in the rectum.

Rectal Cancer Symptoms in Men and Women

Aside from recurrent abdominal discomfort and rectal bleeding, common signs of rectal cancer include:

  • Changes in previous bowel movements, such as painful diarrhea or constipation
  • An urgency to pass bowel motions
  • Bloating or a recurrent sensation of fullness
  • Blood in stool
  • Mucus in stool
  • Loss of appetite
  • Weight loss without dieting
  • Iron deficiency (anemia)
  • Fatigue or weakness

Schedule a meeting with your doctor if you have one or more persistent symptoms.

Rectal Cancer Causes

Like most progressive diseases, the exact cause of rectal cancer remains unknown. However, specific risk factors may increase a man or woman’s chances of rectal cancer, including:

  • Increasing age
  • Personal or family history of polyps or colorectal cancer
  • Inflammatory bowel disease, such as ulcerative colitis
  • Tobacco smoking
  • A diet high in fat and low in fiber and calcium
  • Obesity

Rectal Cancer Diagnosis

If you have symptoms that may signal cancer of the rectum, your healthcare provider will examine your body and ask questions about your general health and family medical history.

Specialized testing that requires frequent sampling of the blood may help determine if you have rectal carcinoma. Your physician may follow up with a digital rectal examination, which uses a lubricated, gloved finger inserted in the anus to feel tumors on the rectal wall. Colonoscopy and endoscopy are two other tests a doctor may recommend. These procedures utilize a flexible, tube-like instrument with a light and a lens to look inside the rectum for polyps.
