Conclusions HT with daily IGRT is efficacious and safe in the treatment of anal canal cancer patients, and is considered in our department standard of care in this clinical setting. The other variables investigated were not statistically significant. Five hundred deaths were projected, with a modest female predominance in incidence and deaths. Risk factors, such as smoking Brachytherapy is a variant of conventional radiotherapy but at an interstitial level, in which a high dose of radiation, directly in contact with the primary tumor, is emitted, not reaching the normal surrounding tissue, the contralateral mucosa, and the sphincter. There was no evidence of recurrent rectovaginal fistula, but thick fibers surrounded the tumor, likely representing part of the previous rectovaginal fistula. Surgical treatment is based on local excision of the lesion or abdominoperineal resection of the rectum and anus, whereas the medical treatment is based on the anorectal segment preservation through chemoradiotherapy or radiotherapy alone.

Thanks in advance for your time. The objective of this article is to present a case in which the tumor has reached giant dimensions and also to stress the importance of an in toto resection, taking into account the high rate of recurrence and the significant potential of malignant transformation of BLT. Inguinal lymph involvement is an independent prognostic factor in patients with anal carcinoma. Radiotherapy of epidermoid anal canal cancer. Post-toilet wiping behaviours were significantly associated with the prevalence of anal cytological, histological and HR-HPV carriage outcomes.
