There isn't one type of person who gets anal cancer.
However, there are certain risk features that have been associated with a higher risk of possibly developing anal cancer. These include: having hpv infection, your number of lifetime sexual partners, genital warts, cigarette smoking, receptive anal intercourse, and having hiv.
