AIDS-Associated Cancers

The powerful antiretroviral drug combination, highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART), allows people with HIV to live as long as those without the virus. However, some cancers continue to pose serious health risks to people with HIV.

At Memorial Sloan Kettering, our multidisciplinary team of doctors has expertise in diagnosing and treating AIDS-associated cancers such as Kaposi sarcoma, lymphoma, anal cancer, cervical cancer, lung cancer, and hepatitis-related cancers. In addition, many of our patients can access innovative therapies through our clinical trials.

Find information specific to the soft tissue skin condition Kaposi sarcoma (KS), which is often associated with AIDS, in our Kaposi sarcoma guide.
