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.
