Caption: Rectal cancer. Gross specimen of a malignant (cancerous) tumour (centre) in the rectum, the terminal part of the intestines, which stores faeces before they exit the body via the anus. This is a carcinoma, a cancer that arises from the lining of an organ. Colorectal cancer is one of the most common cancers in the Western world. It is a disease of late and middle age. Risk factors include a diet high in animal fat and low in fibre and a sedentary lifestyle. Symptoms include rectal bleeding and abdominal pain. Treatment is with surgery to remove the affected area.
