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.

"Many a times patients confuse fissure with piles. They keep taking home remedies or OTC medicines without knowing the exact cause. This often delays a proper diagnosis and eventually, the correct treatment. At times I have patients coming with severed conditions and combination of different anorectal diseases including grade 4 piles. This makes treatment difficult and recovery longer. So, as a rule of thumb, I will suggest do not trust home remedies/ OTC treatment for permanent cure of piles. If you experience continuous pain, bleeding and abscess, consult a good proctologist as soon as possible and let your doctor decide the best course of action."

Anorectal diseases, like anal fissure should never be left untreated as these diseases can degrade your quality of life significantly. You should see a doctor immediately when you notice the symptoms, like, rectal bleeding, itching in the anal region, and sharp pain during bowel movements.
The cost of fissure treatment depends on various factors, such as, severity of the disease, doctor’s consultation fee, choice of hospital, type of treatment recommended by the doctor, hospital admission/discharge and bed charges, pre and post treatment medications, etc. Due to these factors, the actual cost will be different for each patient. On average, fissure treatment in Patna will cost you around Rs. 41,500 to Rs. 55,000.
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.
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.
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.
Anorectal surgeons and proctologists who are experts in performing laser anal fissure surgery may take 15 to 45 minutes to complete it. But the duration of the laser surgery is subject to vary from one person to another due to the severity of the fissure and the presence of any underlying disease that can affect the surgical outcomes.
Regardless of the severity of your anal fissure, surgery is considered to be the permanenet cure for anal fissure. In case of anal fissure surgery, the chances of succes is much higher than open surgical treatment.
Normally, the cracks and tears don’t cause pus discharge. But if the fissure site contacts infection, it can lead to pus discharge. Once the fissure gets infected, the condition can become chronic and quite painful. If not treated in time, the fissure can grow deeper and form a channel outside the skin.

Here are a few simple tips that can help you relieve fissure itching:
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.
