What are the differences between colon cancer and rectal cancer?

The difference between colon cancer and rectal cancer is location. The rectum is located in the pelvis, a location which allows the option for radiation treatment. Radiation is rarely used before surgery in colon cancer because of the damage it may cause to nearby vital organs.
