I was lead to believe that my anal cancer was caused by HPV, however, my HPV tests have come back negative. Any explainations what may cause this kind of cancer besides HPV?
Cannot find much online?
Smoking and I think alcohol abuse. Even though they said no for hpv for me, I think it is. I think it can go dormant, just like other diseases.. Shingles comes to mind, when I think of a disease that is a virus that can go dormant, herpes also.
HPV can go dormant or become inactive. I know for a fact that I carry the HPV virus. However, my last HPV test was negative, due to the fact that my virus was not active at the time the test was done. HPV is linked to anal cancer in nearly all cases.
