  • What is anal fissure?

    Fissure is a crack around the anal region. It typically causes severe pain and bleeding during bowel movements. The reason for fissure is trauma inside the inner lining of the anus. A hard bowel is responsible for fissure but chronic diarrhea can also be the cause. Do not leave it untreated. Delay in diagnosis may lead to an acute fissure becoming a chronic one and become more difficult to treat. If anal fissure is not diagnosed, it may also allow other conditions to go undetected and untreated, such as serious infections or even cancer.

    Treatment

    Diagnosis

    The doctor will ask about your medical history and will perform a physical test, which will include a gentle inspection of the anal region. Most of the times the tear is visible. This is the test that is done for the fissure diagnosis. A fissure is considered chronic if it lasts for more than eight weeks. The location of the fissure offers clues about the cause. A fissure bleeding that occurs on the side of the anal opening is likely to be a sign of Crohn’s disease. Your doctor will recommend these fissures test for the diagnosis:

    • Anoscopy: An anoscope is a tubular device that is inserted into the anus to help the doctor view the anus and rectum.
    • Flexible sigmoidoscopy and colonoscopy: In this process, the doctor will insert a thin tube into the bottom portion of your colon. This test is done when you are younger than 50 years and capable to rule out any risk factors for colon cancer.

    Surgery

    There are several home and natural remedies one can try to get relief from symptoms of fissure. When these fail to deliver desired results, it is best to consult the nearest fissure specialist. All types of fissure treatments are available in Chandigarh. The advanced laser-based techniques to cure fissures are quite effective compared to traditional surgery or home remedies. If your condition has reached a stage where surgery is needed, we recommend you consult with the best fissure doctor for the advanced surgical treatment instead of an open surgery.

    What is the difference between anal fissure and anal fistula?

    Anal fissure and anal fistula are two very common anorectal diseases. An anal fissure is a condition where an tear or a crack appearns in the skin near the anus. On the other hand, anal fistulas are tube-like passages that appears in the anal canal or the inner rectum. Most anal fissures are like paper cuts and ususally get healed within a few weeks. If left untreated, both anal fissure and anal fistula can develop into worse conditions. Untreated fistulas can even branch off into multiple openings.

    The symptoms exhibited by both the conditions are very similar to each other. Pain in the anal area, discomfort while seating at the toilet seat and pain while passing a bowel movement, and blood in stools are some of the common symptoms for both anal fissure and anal fistula. But anal fistulas may also include pus secretion from the anal area, an extra opening near the anus or an increase in diarrhea.

    Although different in nature, both the conditions require medical intervention. An anal fissure or anal fistula can be treated by a proctologist or an anorectal/ colorectal surgeon. At initial stages, both the diseases can be managed with medicines. But to treat the condition permanently, one would require a surgical approach, which can be done either through open surgery or laser surgery.
