The patient experiences a sensation of needing to evacuate the rectum but is unable to pass a motion. This is an import- ant early symptom and is almost invariably present in patients with tumours of the lower half of the rectum. The patient may endeavour to empty the rectum several times a day (spurious diarrhoea), often with the passage of flatus and a little blood- stained mucus (‘bloody slime’).
