In brief: Pain, mass, bleeding

Anal cancers may present in various ways as mentioned above.
Once the diagnosis is established, it is important to determine the stage of disease, often with a ct/pet scan. There is a high rate of cure with combined chemotherapy and radiation, although sometimes surgical resection is still necessary.
