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.

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.

Fissure treatment in Ludhiana

A fissure is a painful disease. Plenty of people are suffering from fissure in India. Nearly 20% of the population suffers from a fissure. It mainly consists of children and old people. In a study, 400 people were taken into account out of which 60 (15%) were diagnosed for anal fissure. It means that around 1 in 350 adults in our total population is suffering from a fissure. Patients suffering from bleeding pain were included in the study. In a study that was carried out in the proctology clinic in Ludhiana, 8% of the patients were found to be affected with fissure.

Out of the 60 patients, 40 of them belonged to the age group of 15-40 years, which justifies that the anal fissures are common in the younger and in middle-aged persons. The problem is that the muscles are toned in young and middle-aged people which resists the passage of the stool and it results in the formation of the fissure. Now, among the 60 patients for fissure in Ludhiana, 14 were vegetarian and 46 were on the mixed type of the diet. The main cause of the fissure is the low fiber diet intake. The people in Ludhiana don’t exercise much which is also another cause of the fissure. Moderate exercise like walking helps with the bowel movements and it limits the occurrence of large stools. Exercise will promote the blood flow in your body and having a poor blood flow is also the cause of fissure.

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.
