Thanks for your question on HCM. In my opinion it is DYSPLASIA. It is histopathological term. Normal cells show normoplasia. This means normal division, normal nucleus and cytoplasm. But when cells become malignant, they will show abnormal division, hugh nucleo cytoplasmic ratio with irregular borders. This is known as Dysplasia. And this indicates malignancy when present. So you are having rectal cancer according to this report.
