What is an Anal Fissure? (ফিশার/ फिशर)

Chronic constipation resulting in passing of large, hard stool over a period of time can lead to a small tear or crack in the lining of the anus, making the action of passing stool very painful. This needs surgical repair. That tear is called a ‘fissure’.

An anal fissure is a medical condition in which a small tear or cut forms in the anus’s thin and moist lining. 

It can cause severe pain and bright red blood bleeding during and after bowel movements. Anal fissures can go deep in some cases, exposing the muscle tissue beneath them.

Delaying or avoiding treatment for anal fissures can result in serious complications. Book an appointment with our skilled doctors to get diagnosed for anal fissures and undergo the best and safest anal fissure surgery at Medica Superspecialty Hospital.

Anal fissure is the most common cause of severe anal pain.

Causes of Anal Fissure

As mentioned, an anal fissure is most commonly caused by passing large or hard stools

But other medical conditions such as constipation or diarrhoea on a regular basis can also tear the skin around your anus. That can cause the formation of a fissure. 

Note, not all anal fissures indicate a low-fiber diet or constipation.
Poorly healing fissures or those located in areas other than the posterior and midline of your anus could indicate an underlying condition. However, other factors can also lead to the formation of an anal fissure. These include:

  • Straining during childbirth
  • Having Crohn’s disease or another form of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)
  • Reduction in blood flow to the anorectal area
  • Overly tight or spastic spincter muscles
  • Engaging in anal sex

In rare cases, an anal fissure may also develop due to:

  • Anal cancer
  • HIV
  • STDs- Syphilis, Herpes
  • Tuberculosis

Symptoms of Anal Fissure

One or more of the following symptoms may be prompted by an anal fissure:

  • A noticeable tear in the skin around your anus that doesn’t heal
  • Next to the tear, a skin tag or small lump of skin may appear
  • During bowel movements, a sharp pain is felt in the anal area
  • Presence of blood stains on stools 
  • Itching or burning in the anal area

If the above mentioned symptoms persist for a few weeks, then it is highly advised to book an appointment at the earliest to enable a proper diagnosis and treatment of your condition.

Diagnosis: 

Anal fissures can be diagnosed by doctors through physical examinations of the anal area. 

Your medical and medication history may be required by the doctors to rule out the presence of any disease or disorder that can cause anal fissures. 

Our specialists will examine the tear and assess the severity of your anal fissures using cutting-edge diagnostic devices and procedures such as: 

  • Anoscopy
  • Colonoscopy
  • Flexible Sigmoidoscopy.

As a result, our specialist doctors can offer you the most appropriate treatment options.

Treatment for Anal Fissure

The majority of anal fissures apparently heal without the need for surgery. Because anal fissures are open wounds, keeping the area clean and dry will aid our body’s natural ability of heal.

Making dietary changes like:

  • Eating a high-fiber diet
  • Drinking plenty of fluids
  • Taking sitz baths
  • Applying anti-inflammatory ointments can help heal existing fissures and prevent new ones from forming.

But in cases where the fissures refuse to heal on their own, surgery and supporting medications prescribed by experienced doctors as treatment for anal fissures.

Usually anal fissures can be treated with surgeries such as anal sphincterotomy, lateral internal sphincterotomy [LIS], and laser fissure surgery. 

Medica Superspecialty Hospital in Kolkata ensures that the patient’s experience is seamless from the start. From scheduling an appointment at the clinic to receiving a detailed diagnosis, scheduling tests at a diagnostic centre, completing insurance paperwork, commuting from home to the hospital and back on the day of surgery, admission-discharge processes at the hospital, and follow-up consultation after the surgery – everything is simple and caring. We are committed to being there for you at every stage of your recovery.

COMMON QUESTIONS

There is currently no clinical evidence to support whether an anal fissure can cause piles or not. Piles and fissures are anorectal diseases with a few symptoms in common, such as bleeding, itching, and swelling in the anal area. You can consult with our doctors for more information on piles and anal fissures.

An anal fissure is a tear or crack in the anus lining. A fistula, on the other hand, is an abnormal tube-like connection or passageway between two organs or tissues.

Cancer is not caused by anal fissures. Anal fissures, on the other hand, can cause pain, swelling, irritation, and bright blood discharge from the anal area. Consult with one of our anal fissure doctors to learn more about anorectal diseases [piles, fissures, and fistulas] and cancer.
