see link here re; UCSF physician renowned in area of anal dysplasia and infectious disease ... See his long list of publications ... i found this interesting. He deals with a "high risk" group ... So risk factors are real and to be considered.
Ucsf deals with dysplasia ... In men an women ...
I believe anal PAP in standard prevention should be considered and HPV vaccine.
What do u think?
I was never diagnosed with HPV in the 28 years I was tested ... PAP and dual test for hi risk HPV ... Yet the (I hate to say my) tumor was strongly positive for HPV 16. So ... To say "never positive" means nothing to me ... 80 % of all sexually active have HPV ....
Opening this is for your thoughts And discussion ...
I am am a survivor - thriver ... 3 years post diagnosis high grade tumor anal cancer ... Standard 5FU - mitomycin combined Radiation therapy.
Im iall but convinced in the link between anal cancer and HPV. Most all cervical dysplasia and squamous cell CA of the cervix is due to HPV.
As a point, And I never had anal sex ... It's not necessary to inoculate the hinner with the virus! Transmitted skin to skin ... Through secretions and menses ... Fingers and hands ...
what do u think? the recent post re; Sloan Kettering got me going on this .... It matters for the future ... Don't u think?
although I will say ... When I was in treatment and still getting my head back together after treatment ... Causality was not what I was focused on. So many here may not be ready to talk causal relationships and prevention in others yet ... Or ever.
what do u think?
