This cancer develops in the anal tissues and occurs in the anal canal, the short tube at the end of the rectum where solid waste is removed. The most common type of anal cancer is squamous cell carcinoma and some of the signs and symptoms include anal or rectal bleeding, pain around the anal area, chronic anal itching, and a mass or growth in the anal canal.
Anal cancer occurs when healthy cells turn abnormal and start multiplying quickly. This can cause a tumor and over time, the cancer cells can invade tissues in the area. Having human papillomavirus (HPV) can increase the risk of developing anal cancer as well as those that take immunosuppressive drugs. In addition, people over age 50 have greater risk of developing anal cancer, as well as those who smoke.
