There are few signs of this cancer that you shouldn’t ignore but before we talk about these signs let me tell you what causes anal cancer. When your healthy and normal cells turn into abnormal ones because of genetic mutation then this cause anal cancer. The healthy cells grow and die at the set rate. And an abnormal cell doesn’t have a set rate and they can’t control that means they can never die.
And let me warn you that it didn’t stop until it wakes every sleeping cell in the body. When they become active they will start invading the nearer tissues and spreads throughout the body by separating them from a mass tumour. Sexual intercourse is the main risk factor for this cancer. It will also increase the chances of HIV as well.
Pain In the Anus:
Pain in the anus can also mean that you have haemorrhoids in most of the cases but don’t take it lightly it can be an early sign of anal cancer. The pain will be mild but stays all the time. If you don’t visit your doctor on time then it will become unbearable and cancer will spread throughout your body.
Itchy anus could also mean that you have rashes or some other hygiene problem but it can e a sign of anal cancer as well. So if feel itchiness then doesn’t scratch it and visit a doctor for better treatment.
