My name is Nancy G. I am a survivor of anal cancer, March 2015 at the age of 74.
I had been fighting an anal fissure for six months and was sent to a surgeon for surgery to correct the problem. I met with the surgeon and he confirmed I needed surgery and that he was 99% sure there was no cancer. Three weeks later I had surgery and I had cancer.
After chemo and radiation there is no evidence of cancer. I did not know much about cancer, but for my type of cancer there was only one type of treatment.
