What is AIDS Related Cancer?
In India there is a different spectrum of HIV associated malignancies. Kaposi’s sarcoma is relatively rare whereas cervical cancer incidence is higher.
Treatment of cancers is more difficult in HIV patients since they have lower immunity and tend to suffer more side effects of medications. With newer combination of drugs being used to treat HIV patients, the incidence of Kaposi’s sarcoma and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma has come down. However, with the increase in life span, the non-AIDS defining malignancies are on the rise and should be watched for.
