Get to Know Your Words: Anal Dysplasia

Anal Dysplasia 

Anal dysplasia is a condition in which some of the cells within the anus have transformed into abnormal cells. High resolution imaging is needed to detect these abnormal lesions

Anal dysplasia is not cancer, but it is a pre-cancerous condition. In other words, if the abnormal cells are left untreated, they can turn into cancerous tumors.

In most cases, anal dysplasia is caused by the human papillomavirus, or HPV.
