The term “anal cancer” usually refers to a squamous cell cancer (SCC) of the anal canal, which represents the majority of cancers arising in the anal region. However, SCCs can also arise in the perianal skin and in the rectum, and SCCs arising at these sites are generally treated in the same manner as anal canal SCCs.
