I have been told today, I have anal cancer and need to start radio & chem therapy. I’m feeling a bit shocked to say the least. It’s good to know that people have shared they are ‘clear’ after treatment. I’b be interested to hear from anyone who’s been there!

Hi – I’m Pauline. I was diagnosed with colon cancer in 2012. After 5 weeks of radiotherapy and chemotherapy I was told I would have to have surgery and due to the position of my tumour this would result in a permanent stoma. Luckily I was told about papillon radiotherapy and, with the reassurance that if this did not work I could still opt for surgery, felt I had nothing to lose and went ahead. After 3 sessions with Professor Sun Myint am pleased to say I have been in remission for nearly 2 years. I cannot speak highly enough of Prof Sun Myint and his team at Clatterbridge and feel this treatment should be more widely offered as an alternative to radical surgery to everyone – not just the elderly and people who are not strong enough to cope with surgery. I know the initial diagnosis is a tremendous shock but there is a lot of help out there! – Pauline

Hi Christine, my name is Ken, I too was told I had anal cancer but surgery was not an option due to other ongoing health problems. I was told of a treatment that might be suitable for me in Liverpool with Professor Sun Myint, I had normal radiotherapy at my local cancer hospital and then three sessions with the team in Clatterbridge, I am so pleased to say that 18 months later I’m still in remmision and being carefully watched by Mr Myint and his team.
