Radiotherapy and chemotherapy for rectal and anal cancer

Overview

Dr Rashmi Jadon is a Consultant Clinical Oncologist at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, specialising in the oncological management of rectal cancer and anal cancer. Dr Jadon has expertise in both radiotherapy and chemotherapy for these cancers.

Having grown up in the north-east of England, Dr Jadon qualified as a doctor from Newcastle University in 2004. Dr Jadon completed her clinical oncology training in Leeds, Bristol, Bath, Ipswich and Norwich (2009 – 2017).

Dr Jadon undertook a 2-year research fellowship at Velindre Cancer Centre in Cardiff, specifically studying advanced radiotherapy techniques for patients with pelvic cancers. This led to her completing a research MD (Doctor of Medicine) from Cardiff University in 2017. Her research focussed on the use of advanced radiotherapy techniques in the pelvis to reduce short and long term side-effects for patients.

As a consultant at Addenbrooke’s Hospital since 2017, Dr Jadon is the lead consultant for rectal and anal cancers, continues to have a strong interest in research and contributes to several clinical trials of novel treatment approaches.
