Anal dysplasia: Electrocauterization vs. topical treatment
« on: March 28, 2012, 05:36:17 PM »

Good blurb by Tim Horn in the treatment news section of poz.com recently. Study size could be larger but it's still better than what I'd found about topical treatment possibilities previously. It seems clear that topical is not the way to go with this issue for reasons even greater than the side effects, meaning the response rates.

Good to know.  I'm currently in the midst of Aldera treatment for high grade AIN.  I had some acid treatment when I had the HRA and Guardasil vaccine followed by the Aldara. 

I go in next week to my regular doctor and back to the HRA dr in 6 months for another Looksy.   I'll ask about electro....

I suppose if I go for my follow up in 6 months and there in not complete remission of the AIN you would think they would go to the next step, maybe  that's the electro thing.

Don't be fancy, just get dancey

I'd still love to see this study information showing that Guardasil is the way to go after treatment for someone with high-grade AIN.

After many years of having high grade lesions surgically removed by laser outpatient in the O.R., which I much preferred to a painful E.C. procedure in office, I progressed to rectal cancer. Caught early I did undergo chemo and radiation. I highly recommend reading the research of Dr. Joel Palefsky of San Francisco, who did so much work studying HPV and rectal cancer in MSM. Thankfully five years post radiation I am cancer free, however, the HPV remains in my body even though I do not have outbreaks. I too would like to see the research of Giardisil on HPV+ MSM. Does it decrease the incidence of progression to high grade dysplasia and finally rectal cancer within this group. Finally, insist on a rectal PAP once a year. Too many times this slips through the cracks when it comes time for your yearly exam! You cannot afford to miss this important test.
