I’ve been tested positive for HPV 2 years ago and since then I had LEEP procedure to remove the affected cells from my cervix, but since I’ve been experiencing strange rectal pain on and off for last month and went to exam, it turned out I’ll have to have a colonoscopy and smear to determine if I have active HPV in my anal canal as well. Even though I was at first mad at my ob-gyn for not telling me there is a chance I have dysplastic cells in my anal as well, I’m now more terrified of the possible outcome – I don’t know is it possible that HPV can cause rectal cancer, on the same principle it can cause cervical cancer?
