Fissures are small paper-like cuts or tears in the mucosal lining of the anus. 20 to 35% of India’s population is reported to have an anal fissure. Incidence of the fissure is highly observed in the urban and suburban population [18% vs 12%].
Fissures can make you suffer from pain and bleeding during bowel movements. A few of the comorbidities associated with this anorectal disease are chronic constipation [14.2%], hypothyroidism [14.7%], obesity [13.0%], and solid tumors without metastasis [5.2%].
Surgical procedures are highly effective in curing anal fissures, and open surgery and laser surgery are two surgical methods used by doctors to treat anal fissures.

For mild anal fissures, treatment includes dietary changes [diet containing high fiber], lifestyle changes, stool softeners, and medications like creams, ointments, and tablets. Rarely, suppositories and enemas are used. If none of these are effective against anal fissures, surgical treatments or procedures are recommended.
