High Resolution Anoscopy and the Diagnosis and Treatment of Anal Dysplasia Anal dysplasia means precancerous changes in the squamous cells lining the anus and is associated with Human Papillomavirus (HPV) infection. If untreated, anal dysplasia may progress over time to squamous cell carcinoma.
Dr. Adams will discuss what anal dysplasia is and why it is important to be screened for anal cancer. He will also describe the tests and procedure used in the diagnosis and treatment of anal dysplasia, including PAP testing, high-risk HPV testing and High Resolution Anoscopy (HRA). He will also explain the importance of DARE (Digital AnoRectal Exam). Dr. Adams will also discuss treatment options for patients with anal dysplasia, including topical and surgical techniques that are administered at Eisenhower’s Sexual Health Clinic at Rimrock.
This lecture will be held at The LGBT Community Center of the Desert, Palm Springs on Wednesday, May 15, 2019, from 05:30 PM to 06:30 PM.
