About Anal Cancer
- Anal cancer occurs when cancer cells form in the tissues of the anus.
- When compared to cancer of the colon or rectum, anal cancer is relatively rare.
- However, an estimated 5,200 new cases of anal cancer are diagnosed in the United States each year.
- Anal cancer is one of the few cancers in which a combination of radiation and chemotherapy can cure the majority of patients (depending on the cancer stage) without surgery.
