Anal Cancer Killed Farrah
The American Cancer Society estimates that in 2008 about 5,070 new cases of anal cancer will have been diagnosed in the United States (about 3,000 in women and 2,000 in men). It is typically found in adults, average age early 60s.
How Cancer Works
Cancers are caused by a series of mutations. Each mutation alters the behavior of the cell somewhat.
This diagram is in the public domain in the United States because it is a work of the United States Federal Government under the terms of Title 17, Chapter 1, Section 105 of the US Code.
Risk Factors for Anal cancer
There are a number of factors that are considered to increase a person's risk for developing anal cancer. These included:
* Human papillomavirus (HPV) infection: get checked.
* Sexual activity: Having multiple sex partners or having anal sex.
* Having anal sex without the use of condoms.
* Smoking: Strange as it may seem, people who smoke are several times more likely to develop anal cancer than people who do not smoke.
* Having a compromised immune system.
* Benign anal lesions such as those associated with inflammatory bowel disease and hemorrhoids.
What is HPV?
HPV stands for human papillomavirus, a papillomavirus that infects the epidermis and mucous membranes of humans. It can lead to cancers of the cervix, vulva, vagina, and anus in women. In men, it can lead to cancers of the anus and penis.
Approximately 130 HPV types have been identified. While some types of HPV cause warts or cancer, the scary thing is that many people who become infected with HPV don't even know they have it.
Although really gross to look at, this image is a work of the National Institutes of Health, part of the United States Department of Health and Human Services. As a work of the U.S. federal government, the image is in the public domain.
Know the Symptons
Symptoms of anal cancer include bloating and change in bowel habits, sporadic bright red rectal bleeding accompanied with uncontrollable itching at the opening of the anus, and low energy and fatigue. Women may experience lower back pain due to pressure the tumor exerts on the vagina, and vaginal dryness.
Did you know?
Farrah Fawcett was a talented sculptor and art collector who owned works by Chagall, Dufy and Magritte. Her friend Andy Warhol — a man who understood the fleeting nature of celebrity — produced a silkscreen of her.
Most anal cancers derive from human papillomavirus infections so check with your doctor to see if the HPV vaccine can help reduce your risk.
