Fissure is a cut or a sore near the anal opening. It is a thin and moist tissue that occurs in the lining of the anus. Most anal fissures are related to young infants but can also be seen in people of all ages. Anal fissures may occur when large or hard stools pass during bowel movements. Anal fissures result in bleeding and discomfort during bowel movements.
Causes of Anal Fissures
The causes of anal fissures can be classified as common causes as well as rare causes.
The following are the common causes of fissures:
- Injury or stretching of the anal canal
- Constipation and straining of anal tissues
- Anal sexual intercourse
- Chronic diarrhoea

- HIV sometimes
- Crohn’s diseases or any other bowel inflationary diseases

Symptoms of Fissures
The following are the most common symptoms of fissures:
- An extremely painful or burning sensation at the time one passes his feces. This pain can also last for an hour or more
- Bright red colored bleeding on the toilet paper or the stool
- Irritating or constant itching
- A person with a fissure generally avoids bowel movement. That leads to worsening as it further dries and hardens the stool, leading to a painful fissure
- Sometimes a pile is developed at the end of the anus due to a fissure
- A tightening feeling of the anus
- Painful boils filled with pus near the anus
Diagnosis of Anal Fissures
Anal fissures are diagnosed based on the description of symptoms, followed by a physical examination. The doctor sees the area around the anus. Most of the fissures are found in the top or bottom position of the anus. The location of the fissure itself shows the cause of it.
If the doctor determines that you have an underlying condition, the following may be performed:
Anoscopy: This includes insertion of a tube with a camera inside the anal canal to view the inside of your rectum and anus. The tube is flexible and is very thin. If the fissure is painful, then topical anaesthesia will be given during the tube insertion.
Colonoscopy: In a colonoscopy, the entire rectum is examined by inserting a tube into the rectum. This test is used for patients who are above 50 years and are at risk of developing colon cancer.
Sigmoidoscopy: It examines the lower portion of the colon. In this procedure, a thin flexible camera is inserted into the bottom of the colon.
Fissures Treatment in Hyderabad
Anal fissures get cured on their own in a few weeks. Dietary supplements like fiber rich foods, and excessive fluids help in treating fissures. Keeping stool soft and soaking fissures in warm water for 20 minutes also heals the fissures faster.
If symptoms keep on continuing, the treatment can be initiated. Treatment of fissures can be surgical or can be cured with medications alone.
Non-surgical treatment: It includes injections, ointments, anaesthetic creams, and blood pressure medications. Most of the fissures get cured by these methods. But if fissures are chronic, surgery will be needed.
Surgery : Sometimes surgery will only be a solution if your symptoms are severe. Lateral internal sphincterotomy procedure is performed to treat fissures. It involves removing a piece of anal sphincter muscle to reduce pain and support healing.
Laser treatment for Fissures: Laser fissure treatment does not require surgery and reoccurrence can be minimized. It is painless and the recovery rate is faster. The probability of infection is the least.
