Study Shows That Anal Cytology Predicts Anal Precancer In HIV-positive Gay Men

Science Daily ó HIV-positive men who have sex with men are up to 90 times more likely than the general population to develop anal cancer. Detection of precancerous changes (anal dysplasia) by anal cytology -- essentially an anal canal Pap smear -- is a relatively new procedure and one that has yet to enter standard practice.

Now researchers at UCLA report in a new study that they have demonstrated that abnormal anal cytology was highly predictive of anal cell abnormalities that were subsequently confirmed by anal biopsy. The study was based on data from 244 patients at the UCLA CARE clinic who had anal cytology screenings between February 2002 and December 2004.

Abnormal anal cytology in HIV-positive men who have sex with men is highly indicative of the presence of abnormal anal cells that may be precancerous and should prompt further investigation. The UCLA CARE Center is one of a handful of clinics in the United States offering an anal dysplasia screening and management service.

Authors of the study include Ross D. Cranston, Steven.D. Hart , Jeffrey A. Gornbein, Sharon L. Hirschowitz, Galen Cortina, and Ardis.A. Moe, all of UCLA. The research appears in the February issue of the International Journal of STD & AIDS.

That's fine... just make sure at some point you have a doctor ram a q-tip swab up your shit chute to check for these little boogers.  As long as things are caught on the early side it's not so harrowing to deal with.

Not sure that I do either, milker.  Screw your brains out & have fun.  I'd still say a swab now and again would be a wise action.  I'm sure planning on getting them.

I think he's tying this thread in with the OMGNOKISSINGWEGOTAIDS!!!111one! thread. 

All I did was present some information saying if you are gay and HIV+ you should be aware of this, get checked for it and then you can have whatever necessary preventive work done so that you don't get anal cancer.  No where in this thread did I use fear mongering about this subject in relation to engaging in sex... AT ALL.  Like I'm someone that does that anyway -- as if.

Milker's comments were overly reactive and irrelevant.

All I'm saying is that it's YET another link to a website that says that HIV people are more likely to get XYZ cancer than anyone else. Yes, we are, and? What's the news? Mrs XY and Mr YZ my neighbors are also very likely to have cancer for ABC reasons. I didn't see the point of that post, except scaring people with HIV, when we already have so much to deal with, basically.

Overly reactive, maybe. Irrelevant, no. Now spank me.

Now you're just being silly.  This subject is directly linked with HPV.  Don't tell me you've not educated yourself on that one.  Women get that too... so tell me what the conspiracy is again against gay men?  Absurd.

The subject brought up by David has to be discussed over and over again in these forums.  HPV, like so many viruses Hiv+ folks deal with, is a serious menace to the health of women (cervical cancer) and men who have sex with men, especially if you're bottom.
And the only way to find out whether you already have some abnormal cell growth "down there", is to take/pass, first, a pap smear and, next,  the biopsies to be analysed under the microscope.
Besides, it is better to treat either  "in situ" anal carcinoma and/or "stage I" anal cancer than invasive anal cancer that has spread to the lymps nodes and other organs.  Seriously!

I remember going to a talk by Germaine Greer once, who was saying that the only reason women got cervical smears was because the (male) medical establishment was sexist, and enjoyed violating women for no good reason. She wanted to know why there wasn't a male equivalent (like regular prostate biopsies).

She must be happy now!  :P

In Serbia anal pap smear is a pure SF.
We do not even have a proctologist who is in charge with HIV patients and have to do that kind of exams by our own.

My doctor told me to expect a little swab on my next visit at the start of May. 

When I'm able to tell that attention is being paid to peripheral concerns like HPV, it makes me feel more confident about my HIV care overall.  And this was brought up without me having to prompt it.
