Rectal Cancer Treatment: SummaryRectal cancer treatment options depend on a number of factors, such as the stage of rectal cancer. Remember, there is no single rectal cancer treatment that is "right" for all people. New treatments are available today that were not even imagined a few years ago, and medical researchers continue to find better ways to treat rectal cancer.
You can always ask more than one doctor about your diagnosis and rectal cancer treatment plan. Your doctor can help you arrange an appointment with another specialist. Many health insurance companies pay for second -- and even third -- opinions.
Most important, you should never be afraid to ask questions or to ask people to repeat information or instructions. There are no "dumb" questions when you are faced with cancer. When you know what to expect, you will feel more in control of your life.
