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.

    The doctor will ask for your medical history and perform a physical examination to diagnose fissures. Typically, a gentle inspection of the anal region is enough to identify the cracks and tears in anal lining. A chronic fissure will have deeper tears and may have fresh internal and external growths. The exact location of the fissure will provide clues about its cause. If the doctor suspects that there is an underlying condition that is the primary cause of fissure, he/she will recommend additional tests, such as anoscopy, flexible sigmoidoscopy, and colonoscopy.


    Laser surgery is the method employed by Pristyn Care surgeons for the treatment of anal fissure. The laser probe is used to locate the tears and promote blood flow in the region so that the fissure can heal faster. If needed, a small part of anal sphincter is removed to relieve the pressure and reduce the spasm and pain inside the anal canal. Laser surgery serves as the permanent cure for anal fissure as it treats the disease from the roots without any risks or complications. Moreover, the patient will recover completely within 2-5 days and resume the daily activities without a hitch.

    How much does fissure operation cost in Kochi?

    Fissure operation cost in Kochi ranges between Rs.35,000 to Rs.45,000 which may vary for each individual depending upon various influencing factors such as severity of the fissure, hospital charges, medication cost, doctor fee, the price of diagnostic tests, insurance support etc.

    Why does anal fissure bleed?

    Fissure bleeds when you pass a large hard stool. In fissure, the blood vessels inside the anal region becomes weak and when you pass hard feces the tears and cracks expose those vessels causing bleeding. In some cases, rectal bleeding can also be a sign of other underlying conditions.

    Is bleeding from anus the sign of cancer?

    Not necessarily. Though slow rectal bleeding and bloody stools are the symptoms of rectal cancer, the blood is usually not visible. The best thing to do is to consult experts at Pristyn Care and get diagnosed properly.

    How do you permanently heal a fissure?

    The permanent cure of fissure is undergoing laser surgery. In earlier stages, a person can prevent fissure from advancing to the chronic stage with home remedies. But if they are ineffective and the condition advances, laser surgery will help to cure and heal a fissure completely.

    How long should I wait before consulting a doctor for fissure?

    If you have symptoms of anal fissure, try home treatment and give 6 weeks to the fissure to heal on its own. If the problem persists for more than 6 weeks, you must not delay the treatment and get in touch with medical experts nearby.

    What can delay healing of fissure?

    Mostly, passing hard or loose bowel movements, spasm in the internal anal muscle, scarring, and unhealthy lifestyle, all these factors contribute in delaying the healing process. However, if fissures are caused by some other medical condition like Inflammatory Bowel Disease, infections, or anal tumors, they will also prevent the fissure from healing completely.

    What is the success rate of laser fissure surgery at Pristyn Care?

    Pristyn Care has performed many surgeries for treatment of anal fissure and 90% of those surgeries were successful. Our doctors are well experienced and skilled in performing laser-assisted surgery.

    Yes, Pristyn Care allows the patients to cover the cost of laser fissure surgery with the health insurance policy. You can contact our medical coordinators and they will verify whether your policy can cover the cost of surgery or not.

    Are fissures and hemorrhoids the same?

    An anal fissure is a small tear or cut in the lining of the anus. Hemorrhoids are a group of inflamed and swollen tissues in the anal area. If you suspect having any of these anorectal diseases, get consulted by the best proctologists at your nearest location.

    What can happen if anal fissures are left untreated?

    If anal fissures are left untreated, they can cause severe constipation, fecal impaction, pain in the anal area, sentinel pile, difficulty to do daily activities and can form an anal fistula. To avoid these, you should not delay the anal fissure treatment.

    Do anal fissures reccur after undergoing laser surgery?

    Some clinical studies say that 10% of people who underwent laser fissure surgery have developed anal fissure [recurrence of anal fissures] after 6-8 months. So, it is important to follow all the post-surgical tips suggested by the doctor to avoid recurrence.

    How long does it take to recover after laser fissure surgery?

    Once you undergo anal fissure surgery, you may take 1-3 days to resume your daily activities. However, to recover and heal completely without any complications, you may take 3-4 months. If you wish to recover quickly, you should follow all the precautions as directed by the doctor.

    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.
