If your physician suspects rectal cancer, you may wonder what exactly is wrong, and what your treatment options are. The Netherlands Cancer Institute offers rapid diagnostics for an increasing number of tumor types such as rectal cancer. If possible, all diagnostic tests required to diagnose you will take place on the same day.
Multidisciplinary team meeting
Your results will be discussed during a multidisciplinary team meeting involving all specialists (from our Gastrointestinal, Radiology, Pathology, Radiation Oncology, and Medical Oncology departments) involved in diagnosing and treating rectal cancer. You will receive your results, as well as a preliminary treatment plan, directly after.
