Anal Cancer

more about Anal Cancer


  • This is a tumor in the anal canal, specifically, squamous cell (a specific cellular type) carcinoma of the anus.  These tumors often invade the anal sphincter (controls release of stool) and spread upwards toward the rectum.

  • Bleeding from rectum
  • Rectal pain

  • Mass may be felt on examination
  • Biopsy

  • Abdominoperineal resection (extensive surgical resection from anus extending upward)
  • Very small tumors may only need surgical removal.
  • Radiation treatment for inoperable disease (disease has spread too much)
  • If metastatic, spreads to lymph nodes (glands) in the groin and these glands may be resected.
