Moderately differentiated adenocarcinoma of rectum

  • My sister has been diagnosed to have moderately differentiated adenocarcinoma of rectum. What does it mean? Is there a cure? Are there any related side effects?

  • Hi Jai, your sister has been diagnosed to have rectal cancer. Treatment and outcome, in this case, depends on the stage of the disease. Further tests like USG abdomen, Chest X-ray, MRI pelvis (Whole Body PET CT if possible) and few routine blood tests are required to stage her disease. Rectal cancer is generally treated with surgery and radiotherapy followed by chemotherapy. In case you have any further queries with respect to the above-mentioned tests or her condition, do reach out to us. Take care!
