Response from Dr. Holodniy
AIN3 would be considered a precancerous lesion, but it can progress to cancer if not attended to. Anal warts are usually related to human papilloma virus (HPV) infection. There are several types of HPV, and some types are more likely to cause precancerous or cancerous lesions than others.
