An anal fissure is a small tear in the mucosa [thin and moist tissue] that lines the anus. It can occur while passing hard or large stools, with decreased intake of fiber-rich foods and tight anal sphincter. As a result of anal fissure, you can suffer from bleeding, itching, swelling, and cracked skin in the anal area. you can even feel a small lump or a skin tag in and around the anus. Usually, it can heal on its own within a few weeks, however, delaying the treatment can cause serious health concerns.

Most often, a gentle inspection of the anal region is required to see the cut or tear. On the basis of the location of the fissure, its cause can be identified. Colonoscopy, flexible sigmoidoscopy and anoscopy may be recommended for further test.
Pristyn Care doctors utilize the laser energy radiating probe that is used to remove a small section of the anal tissue to release the pressure and reduce spasms in the anal sphincter muscles. The laser further improves blood flow in the anal region which promotes faster healing. With an open surgical procedure, there is a significant risk of bowel incontinence. However, laser treatment makes such risks negligible and allows surgeons to operate on the anal region safely.
The laser technique has many advantages and that’s why it is a prevalent method for the treatment of anorectal diseases.

"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."

In Thoothukudi, one can undergo fissure surgery at a price range between Rs. 37,000 to Rs. 45,000. The price changes from one person to another due to multiple factors like doctor fee, medication cost, charges of diagnostic fee, anesthesia cost, etc.
Bleeding from the anal canal is caused due to a hard stool. The same leads to a lot of pain during and after a bowel movement. There is a chance of opening the anal fissure during a bowel, so it continues to cause discomfort and bleed afterward.
A patient of anal fissure feels unbearable pain caused by spasm of the sphincter muscle in the anus. If the torn muscles catch an infection than it will lead to severe pain.
Without treatment, an anal fissure may lead to reduced blood flow to the site of the injury. Therefore, an increase in anal sphincter muscle pressure, to ultimately impaired healing of the wound. Another big risk is a misdiagnosis, it may lead to conditions such as serious infections or even cancer & remain undetected.
Probably not. In fact, cancer is a relatively uncommon cause for rectal bleeding. The common reason includes anal fissure, anorectal fistula, colitis, and non-cancerous (benign) polyps, etc.
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 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.
At Pristyn Care, we leverage modern laser technology for the treatment of anal fissures. The laser technique is a non-invasive procedure that doesn’t involve cuts, stitches, or scars. The basic concept followed by the doctor for the treatment of anal fissure is to improve the blood flow in the anal region and promote tissue regeneration. This helps the fissure to heal quickly within 2-7 days. Hence, the risk of fissure recurrence becomes negligible.
The laser fissure treatment is also beneficial for the patients in other aspects, such as:
Due to all these benefits and being a cost-effective option, laser fissure treatment is preferred by patients as well as doctors. If you want to get rid of fissure in a quick and painless manner, get in touch with Pristyn Care doctors and learn more about the treatment.
