People with HIV who go on antiretroviral treatment and maintain a fully suppressed viral load over the course of many years greatly mitigate their risk of cancer. However, such long-term viral suppression does not eliminate the disparity in cancer risk between those with and without HIV.

Publishing their findings in the Annals of Internal Medicine, researchers studied 1999 to 2015 Veterans Affairs data on 42,441 HIV-positive veterans (who were followed for a median 7.4 years) along with data on 104,712 demographically matched HIV-negative veterans (who were followed for a median 10.1 years).
