An anal fistula is a condition where an abnormal infected tunnel forms between the end of the bowel and the peri-anal skin. This anorectal disease can cause severe rectal pain, swelling, and bleeding from the anal area. If it is left untreated, it can cause serious and life-threatening complications.
According to medical studies, it is evident that about 23% of India’s population suffers from anal fistula. Most individuals with anal fistulas are reported to have either underlying anal disease or anal abscesses.
“Most patients with anal fistula prefer not to get treated in time because of misconceptions about the cost of the anal fistula surgery or treatment. And they think that home remedies are very helpful in curing simple and complex fistulas. But, home remedies only help in reducing the severity and symptoms of fistulas and don’t cure them. So, undergoing surgery is the best and safest method to cure anal fistulas permanently with no or minimal risks.” says one of the best and experienced anorectal surgeons from Pristyn Care.
