Archived Version: Cancer in HIV and Aging

As part of general health maintenance practices, cancer screening in clinically stable HIV-infected patients 50 years and older should be in accordance with current guidelines for the general population. For cervical cancer, anal cancer, and liver cancer where HIV-specific recommendations exist, these guidelines should be followed. For all patients, providers should take into consideration functional status and life expectancy in applying these screening strategies.
