HPV and anal cancer prevention
« on: April 26, 2014, 12:10:10 PM »
Hi all,
recently I was talking with my MD about prevention of different ilnesses and morbidities being hiv+.

Talking about HPV I told her I had a couple of small anal warts many years ago, treated and gone. She told me, apart from this, that it's suggested to have an anal brushing test to analyse if HPV is still there latent and especially what kind of (many types exist and not all of them are associated with anal cancer in the long term).

Has anyone experience on this kind of test? and has anyone done any kind of therapy - vaccine against it?

Thanks to all and have a good weekend!

There are a ton of threads on this topic.  Just search for hpv, or anal cancer, or dysplasia and they will come up.

Everyone with HIV gets checked for anal cancer on a regular basis with an anal pap and sometimes an HRA.  Many of us have had all the treatments and the HPV vaccine also (it gives a mighty headache for about 5 hours).  Its rather routine.
Don't be fancy, just get dancey

Um.... If they take tissue samples to biopsy from your anus it can hurt when you have to use it.   Stool softeners can help.  Some feel no pain.  For me it really smarted for a couple of weeks.
