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 fissures 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 becoming more difficult to treat. If the 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

A fissure is diagnosed by a physical examination which is conducted by the doctor. A rectal examination is conducted for exact identification. Here, the doctor will make use of an anoscope in order to look for the tear. This tool can be inserted inside the anal canal. With the help of an anoscope, the doctor may be able to look for other causes.

Surgery

In Our Doctor's Word

What-Dr. Sajeet Nayar-Say-About-Anal Fissure-Treatment

Dr. Sajeet Nayar

MBBS, MS - General Surgery

19 Years Experience

"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."

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 a tear or a crack appears in the skin near the anus. On the other hand, anal fistulas are tube-like passages that appear in the anal canal or the inner rectum. Most anal fissures are like paper cuts and usually 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 conditions are very similar to each other. Pain in the anal area, discomfort while sitting on the toilet seat and pain while passing a bowel movement, and blood in stools are some of the common symptoms of 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 conditions require medical intervention. An anal fissure or anal fistula can be treated by a proctologist or an anorectal/ colorectal surgeon. In the initial stages, both 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.
