Anal cancer is rare, but the number of diagnoses is rising. Your doctor may refer you to our clinic if you have an undiagnosed anal lump, bump or lesion, or if you have had an anal Pap test that shows abnormal changes in the cells in the lining of the anal canal anal dysplasia. Testing may be recommended if you are living with human papillomavirus HPV , or if you have a weakened immune system or other risk factors for anal dysplasia or anal cancer. After your biopsy, your anus will need to heal during the next several days. You may experience some bleeding and discomfort, especially after a bowel movement.

A systematic comparison between clinical features and the histopathology of suspect lesions is lacking. Objective: This study aims to analyze interobserver agreement in classifying features of intra-anal lesions suspect for anal intraepithelial neoplasia and to compare these features with their histopathological outcome. Design: This study is a cross-sectional survey regarding high-resolution anoscopy with images and biopsies of suspect lesions. Two dermatologists experienced in high-resolution anoscopy, blinded for histopathological outcome, independently classified the lesions on clinical features.
Metrics details. We evaluated satisfaction with first-time anal cancer screening using high resolution anoscopy HRA as a cross sectional survey among men who have sex with men MSM attending a community-engaged clinic in Abuja, Nigeria. The item questionnaire used 5-point Likert scales ranging from 1 strongly disagree to 5 strongly agree. For each domain, responses to specific items were averaged, aggregated, and converted to a point scaled score SS with 25 and 75 corresponding to disagree and agree, respectively. Despite respondents reporting pre-procedure anxiety SS , most were comfortable with the setting and procedure and reported overall satisfaction SS—
Background: High-resolution anoscopy has been shown to improve identification of anal intraepithelial neoplasia but a reduction in progression to anal squamous-cell cancer has not been substantiated when serial high-resolution anoscopy is compared with traditional expectant management. Objective: The aim of this study was to compare high-resolution anoscopy versus expectant management for the surveillance of anal intraepithelial neoplasia and the prevention of anal cancer. Design: This is a retrospective review of all patients who presented with anal squamous dysplasia, positive anal Pap smears, or anal squamous-cell cancer from to
