What is Anal Fissure?

An anal fissure or fistula is a tear in the lining of the anal canal, the passage through which stool exits the body. It can cause pain, bleeding, and discomfort during bowel movements. Anal fissures are often caused by constipation or trauma and can be treated with dietary changes, medication, and in some cases, surgery.

What are the symptoms of Anal Fissure?

Here are some common symptoms of anal fissure:

  • Pain during and after bowel movements

  • Bleeding during bowel movements

  • Itching or burning around the anus

  • A visible tear or crack in the skin around the anus

  • A small lump or skin tag next to the tear

  • Constipation or difficulty passing stools

  • A feeling of incomplete bowel movement

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it's best to see a surgeon for an anal fissure/ fistula laser treatment in Lahore.

What causes Anal Fissures?

A few causes of anal fissures are;

  • Constipation or passing hard stools

  • Chronic diarrhea or loose stools

  • Straining during bowel movements

  • Trauma to the anal area, such as during childbirth or anal sex

  • Inflammatory bowel disease (such as Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis)

  • Sexually transmitted infections (such as herpes or syphilis)

  • Cancer or tumors in the anal area (rare)

How to diagnose Anal Fissures?

The diagnosis of anal fissures or fistulas is typically made through a physical examination of the anal area. In some cases, additional tests such as a colonoscopy or sigmoidoscopy may be recommended to rule out other conditions.

What is the treatment for Anal Fissures?

Depression is treated by using;

  • Dietary changes: Eating a high-fiber diet and staying hydrated can help soften stools and reduce the risk of constipation, which can exacerbate anal fissures.

  • Topical medications: Over-the-counter or prescription creams or ointments containing anesthetics, steroids, or other medications can help relieve pain and promote healing.

  • Anal fissure laser treatment: A minimally invasive approach for treating anal fissures or fistula is anal fissure laser therapy. Anal tissue is surgically removed using a laser. Compared to conventional surgical treatments for anal fissures, anal fissure laser treatment is associated with less pain and a speedier recovery period.

  • Surgery: In severe or chronic cases, surgery may be necessary to remove scar tissue or repair the fissure. This is typically a last resort after other treatments have been tried and failed.
