Piles [hemorrhoids] and fissures are two different anorectal diseases that share some common symptoms. Because of this, many people get confused between piles and anal fissures. And when they make self-diagnosis of the condition, they may mistreat the medical condition, i.e., thinking that they have piles instead of anal fissures and vice-versa.

To have a proper diagnosis and to avail the best suitable treatment, we recommend you consult with the doctor rather than self-diagnosing the condition. Proctologists, colorectal doctors, gastroenterologists, general practitioners, anorectal surgeons, and general surgeons are medical specialists who can easily diagnose and cure piles and fissures.

You can have a consultation with the best proctologists or piles specialists at your nearest location by visiting one of our clinics. In addition, we house several piles and fissures specialists to provide you the safest and permanent cure for your medical condition.

Annually, 1 million new cases of piles are reported in India, and most of them belong to the age groups of 45-65 years. Additionally, more than 40,723,288 people in India are reported to have hemorrhoids. Also, it is estimated that 50-85% of people around the world are suffering from hemorrhoids.

In the case of anal fissures, 20-35% of the Indian population are reported to have them. The incidence of fissure is highly observed in urban [18%] and suburban people [12%] than in rural areas.

Anal fissures equally occur in men and women and most often occur in adults aged 15 to 40. However, the prevalence of fissure was slightly higher in males than females [19.41% versus 14.14%]. Comorbidities associated with anal fissure included chronic constipation [14.2%], hypothyroidism [14.7%], obesity [13.0%], and solid tumors without metastasis [5.2%].

If both piles and anal fissures are not treated, they can cause some serious or life-threatening complications such as:

  • strangulation
  • blood loss
  • intense pain in the anal area
  • formation of blood clots within hemorrhoids
  • extensive scar formation [sentinel pile]

City wise Fistula Treatment-

I had piles for quite some time and the condition didn’t improve after trying many home remedies. When I consulted Dr. Pankaj, I was stressed after knowing that I needed surgical treatment. Fortunately, the doctor briefed me before the procedure and told me that there won’t be any cuts or stitches as they use laser technology. I trusted my doctor and had the surgery the next day. There were no cuts, stitches, or scars involved in the surgery. Now I am recuperating well and don’t feel any pain during bowel movements thanks to Dr. Pankaj
