Anal HPV Warts Tumor 

Referring to this diagnosis as "anal warts" may lead to misunderstandings among patients and fail to address the seriousness of the condition appropriately. This terminology might give patients the impression that they have a type of bumps, similar to a plantar wart on their anal area, rather than on their hand or foot. Consequently, patients may overlook the gravity of their HPV infection in the perianal and anal area, which could bring about significant changes in their lifestyle, career, relationships, and result in a poor prognosis with various complications.

Unlike regular skin warts that are not life-changing, anal HPV tumors represent a distinct and more severe condition. Patients attempting to self-treat with over-the-counter wart removal products and acids can mask the diagnosis, leading to the spread and complication of their condition.

It is important to emphasize that anal warts are benign tumors caused by HPV, which can eventually result in complications and serve as red flags for potential anal cancer, especially when combined with a high-risk virus or the presence of abnormal cells.​

Anal HPV Tumor Diagnosis 

The final diagnosis comes from a tissue biopsy. Tissue biopsy and pathology is a must in patients with anal HPV tumor to make sure there are no cellular changes toward carcinoma and confirming the HPV diagnosis. 

HPV benign tumor is highly vascular, it means it will easily bleed which could spread the HPV further in the area. Surgeons must be extremely careful to minimize HPV growth bleeding during the biopsy. We are extremely careful in our institution of technology we use to minimize or eliminate bleeding. The sample will be sent to the pathologist and the laboratory will put the sample in the bloc and will cut and stain to be read by pathologist's medical doctor. Pathologists must be a very experienced to read microscopic slides and report back to the surgeon.

Psychological Effect of Anal HPV 

Anal HPV is typically a progressive disease, worsening over time. While you may live with genital HPV for a while, the same is not true for anal HPV. Anal HPV manifests with numerous symptoms that consistently draw attention to the affected area. The patient finds it challenging to focus on their life until the condition is treated. Repeated unsuccessful treatments can emotionally impact the patient, leading to feelings of helplessness. Successful removal can reverse this course.

Failed Anal Warts Treatment 
The HPV tumor is in contact with the surrounding tissue in the anal canal or pre-anal area. Failed treatment can result in the irritation of the tumor, leading to viral shedding and infecting the uninfected parts through autoinoculation. In certain disorders or diseases, a failed treatment may be considered just a setback; however, in Anal HPV tumors (anal warts), it is not a simple failure. Instead, it signifies the promotion of the disease and the progression of HPV. In other words, a failed treatment can contribute to the spread of the virus, leading to more prominent infections and tumors.

It is imperative that you seek treatment from an experienced physician or surgeon with a track record of many successful cases to support their expertise.

Hemorrhoids and Anal Warts:

Hemorrhoid patients usually receive topical treatments, which could worsen anal warts. Many patients with Anal HPV present with itching and irritation, often leading to misdiagnosis. It is possible to have both hemorrhoids and anal warts simultaneously, as well as HPV growth and anal warts on the surface of hemorrhoid tissue. Treating anal warts when combined with hemorrhoids is much more challenging.

If you are dealing with both anal warts and hemorrhoids and wondering which one to treat first, it is advisable to prioritize the treatment of HPV warts. While hemorrhoids are unlikely to become cancerous, HPV has the potential to transform anal tissue and lead to cancerous changes. Therefore, addressing the HPV warts first is crucial for preventing the risk of cancer in the long run.
