Early warning signs of anal cancer

Sometimes, anal cancer causes no symptoms at all. But bleeding is often the first sign of illness. Bleeding is usually slight. At first, most people assume that the bleeding is due to hemorrhoids (painful, swollen veins in the anus and rectum that may bleed). Hemorrhoids are a fairly common and benign cause of rectal bleeding.

Important symptoms of anal cancer include:

bleeding from the rectum
Itching in or around the rectum
Lump or lump in the anus
Pain or a feeling of fullness in the anal area
Stool narrowing or other changes in bowel movements
Abnormal secretions from the anus
fecal incontinence (loss of bowel control)
Swollen lymph nodes in the anal or groin area
These types of symptoms are often caused by benign (non-cancerous) conditions, such as hemorrhoids, anal fissures, or anal warts. However, if you have any of these symptoms, it is important to get them checked out by a doctor so that the cause can be found and treated, if necessary.
