I had what the surgeon said was a "skin tag" on my rectum that was removed On July 22, 2010, along with some exploratory surgery to remove adhesions on my left side and they drained a cyst on my right ovary. I was scheduled to see my surgeon on Aug 5th but received a phone call asking me to come in on July 28th, never in a millions years did I think I would be told that I have stage 1 anal cancer, I am scheduled to see an oncologist on Aug. 4th, so for now it is just waiting and wondering. I am not sure of the size or what course of treatment I will be going threw just yet.

09/07/10- Anal Mass Removal- went in for emergency hemorrhoid surgery only to discover it wasn't a hemorrhoid but a tumor. 11/19 /10 - TEM surgery - dr. went in to check out mass spotted on eus and to remove some tissue to see if any cancer cell activity remains. very sore after procedure - since procedure was done directly in anal verge - more sore than most people. 12/29- APR surgery-removed anus and received permanent colostomy
Port placement scheduled 10/4/10
Excision Surgery and further examination. Margings were clear so no Chemo for me! Tons of pain after surgery. Getting better every day.
10/5/2010 Intra-anal excision to remove tumor. Lot's of people talk about "minimal discomfort" from this surgery. I have to say that was not the case for me. I had lots of swelling, bleeding and pain - internal and external. In addition to internal tumor excision, I also had stitches in my rectum. After two weeks bowels movements just bearable - even with pain medicine every four hours.
removal of tumor 9/13/2010, originally told precancerous-3 biospies done, a week after surgery told cancer cells found

Excision very close to sphincter muscle. Diagnosed on 4/27/11 and excised on 4/29/11. Big crater where tumor was, few stitches, pain, drainage. Doctor optimistic she got it all, Pathology will indicate whether or not rad or chemo is in order.
2/09/10 port surgically implanted in chest
Biopsy on Friday. This is my second biopsy since Nov. 2009. The doctors thought my cancer went away as it did not show on PET SCANS. I tried to tell them that Radiation softened the Tumor and that the Tumor was shaved off by brutally rough bowel movements.
I have not had surgery but am investigating the possibility of a liver rescetion.

Separate cancer found in petscan. Stage 1 endometrial. Had a da Vinci total hysterectomy on January 30, 2012. Began std protocol for AC on Feb 20, 2012, (21 days after surgery). I was up walking that night after surgery and back doing my 3 miles a day in a week or so.
1 quadrant hemorrhoidectomy with removal of small tumor on 2/14/12. Called in by doctor for diagnosis on 2/15/12. Positive for cancer.
Laminectomy and tumor removal of the metestatic sacral tumor. This was done microscopically (with a small spoon). Nov 2012 Wedge resection right lower lobe via thoracotomy.
A chemo port was surgically installed just under my collar bone. After I completed 2 rounds of chemo and 7 weeks of radiation, my tumor was much smaller but still there. I switched hospitals from Jefferson Univ. in Phila. to Sloan Kettering in NYC. To determine if the remaining tumor was still cancerous, I had a surgical biopsy, going into the tumor through the anal wall. That identified some irregular cells but no cancer. Since they were sure there was still some cancer, I had a second biopsy done by interventional radiology, going into the tumor through my back while viewing via CT scan to be sure they were in the right place. Still no cancer! Yay! Later I had my appendix removed; it had been damaged by the radiation.
Two groin nodes removed July 2, 2012 Anal skin tag removed Aug, 2012

I also had a heart transplant almost 14 years ago. So I already have a compromised immune system already.... I have HPV and had cervical displasia 10 years ago. So I feel somewhat pre disposed to getting this type of cancer....

Numerous colonscopies.
i had a colonoscopy in Sept of 2014. They found a small lesion just above the dentate line. This was termed AIN 2. In Nov of 2014 they did a biopsy on what they termed a lesion and then destroyed it with electrocautery. The biopsy showed an invasive squamous cell cancer. It was moderately differentiated and it was arising within a background of high- grade dysphasia. The Doctor didn't notify me with results for three weeks. He then called and said I have invasive cancer and would call back in a week after he met with his cancer board. I called him a week later and decided to change doctorrs and went to a research hospital. The new doctor said he thought chemo and radiation at this point was an extreme measure and we should watch it every three months. Did CT scan and MRI both normal. Another spot was identified in May 2016. Excision was preformed June 2016. Didn't get clean margins and that lymph- vascular invasion was present.
Sigmoidoscopy/Biopsy 4/25/11
Had Colorectal Surgery on June 23 2016. "Side Effects ?" I now pass stools like a Play-Doh Fun Factory with a Colostomy Bag fit for a Pack Mule.
After colonoscopy, surgeon took out larger tissue, cells were squamous so radiation/chemo was needed for remaining cells. Surgery was painful. On hydrocodon-acidimidophin.
Complete colostomy done September 29, 2016.
