Anal cancer
      04/06/00 10:17 PM

I tested positive 14 years ago, and have had several AIDS complications. But this is my most recent cause for alarm:
My rectal surgeon has been monitoring and burning off my anal warts for the past 2 years. Recently, we decided one recurring spot needed to have a biopsy, and it came back, in his words, "very very very early cancer, similar to what a person would get from too much time in the sun". I haven't seen the report yet to know exactly which type of cancer, but he's going to remove the entire area around that biopsied spot, plus any other similar areas.
Is anyone else going through a similar situation, and have you tried anything other than cutting out chunks of your butt?
