What is Fissure?

A fissure, also known as anal fissure is a small cut or tear in the thin, moist tissue (mucosa) that develops in the lining of the anal opening. It may lead to itching, pain, and bleeding while making bowel movements. An anal fissure may occur when you pass hard stools. One may also experience spasms in the ring of muscle at the end of your anus (anal sphincter).

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.

    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.

      I have been suffering from an anal fissure for the past 8 months and couldn't determine what to do. I was experiencing sharp pain while defecating, often followed by a deep burning pain that lasted several hours. One of my friends suggested undergoing treatment from Pristyn Care, and I must say it was the best decision I ever made. My overall experience at Pristyn Care for my anal fissure treatment has been excellent. Doctors advised me to undergo laser surgery since it is associated with minimal pain and bleeding and reduced postoperative complications. My surgery went smoothly, and I hardly faced any discomfort or complications. In addition, the medical team at Pristyn Care was always available to answer my queries after my treatment. Their team understands patients' needs and always surpasses expectations. I genuinely recommend Pristyn Care for an anal fissure treatment.
