People living with HIV, especially smokers and men who have sex with men, have up to 80x higher risk of anal cancer than the general population. Even if your patient hasn't had receptive anal sex, they may still be at risk for HPV-associated anal cancer and should be screened.
ANCHOR provides high-resolution anoscopy for your patients living with HIV. Our interactions with the participants are restricted specifically to their participation in ANCHOR and its associated procedures. Conditions not pertaining to anal health are referred back to the primary HIV care provider.
