What are the symptoms of Anal Intraepithelial Neoplasia (AIN)?

Some patients may be unaware that they have AIN present. The principle symptoms are:

  • Itching
  • Raised nodules or tags by the anus

Sometimes AIN can affect all of the skin around the anus (multifocal disease), this is more common in immunosuppressed patients. In other cases it may be confined to a single area.

What our patients think...
The first week after the operation was a very trying time for me and psychologically a very difficult transition having a stoma bag fitted. However a trying time made a lot easier thanks to the care and support offered by Mr Radley and Mandy and I know that thanks to Mr Radley’s surgical skills I have not been in any pain since my operation. ”
