Anal dysplasia is a pre-cancerous condition. It refers to abnormal changes in the cells that make up the lining (mucosa) of the anal canal. Abnormal cells clustered together form a visible pattern called a lesion. Low-grade lesions may progress to high-grade lesions, which are more serious as they can progress sooner to cancer. But not all lesions progress. Some may regress, meaning they shrink or even disappear. Some may persist, meaning they remain present without changing.
We are committed to identify the early signs of the disease and offering medical treatments that are not too complex, with the goal of avoiding radical surgery and standard long-term cancer treatment. Screening tests can detect dysplasia or pre-cancerous changes. If these pre-cancers are treated, anal cancer may be prevented.
