Anal cancer is a potentially deadly disease which can strike at any age. One of the vexing things about anal cancer is how easily it can be misdiagnosed: many of its symptoms, such as pain and bleeding, also appear in cases of hemorrhoids, anal fissure, polyps, and injury.
So how can you be sure it’s cancer, and when is it time to visit a proctologist? This page offers a few good tips for self-care and prevention, including one of the most essential signs to watch out for:
You might get a feeling of a lump or a mass at the anal opening. This must be immediately reported to the doctor, as it might be one of the warning signs of anal cancer.
Anal cancer requires a detailed diagnosis from a specialist in proctological disease. Proctologists boast uniquely advanced training and can offer the most comprehensive medical care for anal cancer and related diseases.
