Rectal Cancer

Rectal Cancer

You are more likely to develop rectal cancer if you have a history of polyps (abnormal tissue growths) in your colon or a family history of colorectal cancer. Other risk factors include age over 50, previous colorectal cancer, or cancer of the ovaries, breast, or lining of the uterus (endometrium).
