Increases in Anal SCC incidence in England

The mASCARA team is very interested to learn from Public Health England that the incidence of Anal SCC in England has increased by 23% from 2013-2017 with female incidence increasing more rapidly than male incidence (29% compared to 14%).  This increasing trend has been identified all over the world. We hope that mASCARA will be able to help identify whether this is due to a change in patient demographics (such as more patients having immunosuppressive co-morbidities such as HIV) or if this is related to other factors.
