WELLNESS ONCOLOGY & HEMATOLOGY
The rectum encompasses the distal portion of the large intestine, which can develop abnormal cell growth within its lining, resulting in rectal cancer. Like the majority of cancers, the exact cause of rectal cancer is not known. Symptoms of rectal cancer include rectal bleeding, pain, and sometimes constipation. Regular colonoscopy can prove to identify small lesions before they become too large and potentially spread outside of the rectum.
Treatment of rectal cancer generally requires a combination of radiation, surgery, and chemotherapy for optimal care and cure. At Wellness Oncology & Hematology, Dr. Shaye, Dr. Lashkari, and Dr. Ho oversee the successful treatment of rectal cancer with special attention to your overall wellness.
