Anal Cancer

What is Anal Cancer

The anal cancer refers to neoplasms that develop in the anus between the upper edge of the anal canal and the site where it connects with the perianal skin.

Among the variety of histological grades of malignant neoplasms, the intraepidermal carcinoma (squamous cell carcinoma) ranks the top position (50-75 %) of all such cases. This tumor is often reported in people over 50. Females with the anal canal cancer prevail.

There is a strong presumption of the link between the cancer and STD which are most likely the visual marker of the concurrent infection with the human papilloma virus.
