Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Infected post-operative wound. Close-up of an infection (pink) on the abdomen of a 75-year-old female patient, one week after surgery. The wound, held together by metal staples, was following the removal of a rectal carcinoma. The patient's navel (centre right) is seen. The rectum is the last part of the digestive tract that follows the colon (large intestine). Because a rectal cancer is similar to colon cancer, it is often named colorectal cancer. Treatment is with removal of the cancerous growth (as here) followed by chemotherapy.
