Rectal cancer occurs when healthy cells in the rectum produce errors in their DNA. In most cases, the cause of these errors is strange.

Healthy cells develop and divide in an orderly way to keep your body working normally. But when a cell’s DNA is destroyed and converts cancerous, cells remain to distribute — even when new cells aren’t required. As the cells accumulate, they form a tumor.

With time, the cancer cells can grow to attack and destroy healthy tissue nearby. And cancerous cells can move to other sections of the body.


  • Surgery to remove the tumor.
  • Chemotherapy
  • Radiation therapy
