In order for rectal cancer research to be conducted, volunteers are needed. Patients who join rectal cancer research studies have the first chance to benefit from treatments that have shown promise in earlier research. Patients who volunteer also make an important contribution to medical science by helping doctors learn more about rectal cancer. Although rectal cancer research trials may pose some risks, researchers take careful steps to protect their patients.
