This decision aid is to help people decide what treatment, or combination of treatments, are suitable to treat their rectal cancer. This decision aid is for people who have rectal cancer that has not spread (metastasised) beyond the rectum or nearby lymph nodes, and has not spread to any other distant parts of the body. It may also be used by their families and carers.
