Symptoms of Anal cancer?

Early detection of anal cancer is common. The first indication of anal cancer is often rectal bleeding, which occurs in more than half the patients. Symptoms of anal tumors are often similar to benign conditions, such as hemorrhoid's, anal fissures, fistulas and anal warts, so it’s important to discuss your symptoms with your doctor.

Besides rectal bleeding, symptoms of anal cancer may include:

  • Persistent or recurring anal itching
  • Persistent or recurring pain in the anal area
  • Feeling of a lump or mass in the anus
  • Change in bowel habits (going to the bathroom more or less frequently) or increased strain during bowel movement
  • A narrowing of the diameter of stool
  • Abnormal discharge from the anus
  • Swollen lymph nodes in the anal or groin area
