An anal fissure is a medical condition that resembles some of its symptoms with other anorectal diseases like piles and anal fistula. So, many people get confused between piles, anal fissures, and anal fistulas.

“An anal fissure is a crack or a tear in the mucosal lining of the anus, whereas piles is a cluster of swollen and inflamed blood vessels and tissues in the anal area, and the fistula is an infected tunnel-like connection between the end of the bowel and perianal skin.” explains one of our best anorectal surgeons.

We suggest you avoid self-diagnosis of the disease condition. Proctologists, general practitioners, colorectal doctors, gastroenterologists, general surgeons, and anorectal surgeons are medical specialists who can easily diagnose and cure anal fissures.

Some of the qualifications of medical specialists who can treat anal fissures are:

  • MBBS
  • Fellowship in gastroenterology
  • MD – Colorectal surgery
  • FRCS – General surgery [Colorectal]
  • FRCP – Gastroenterology
  • MS – General surgery
  • DNB – General surgery
  • Diplomate in the colon and rectal surgery
  • FRCS – General surgery
  • DNB – Surgical gastroenterology
  • DM – Gastroenterology

Not only these but there are many other qualifications, one can have to cure anal fissures.

If anal fissures are healed within six [6] weeks, they are acute, and if they persist for more than six [6] weeks, they are chronic. Anal fissures won’t go on their own. In order to be free from anal fissure, one should undergo surgery. Also, getting treated by the right doctor is as important as choosing the appropriate surgical intervention.

Regardless of gender, both men and women can develop anal fissures. However, the prevalence of fissure is slightly higher in males [19.4%] than females [14.1%]. In any case, if anal fissures are not treated, or the surgery is avoided, they can cause some serious or life-threatening complications such as:

  • blood loss
  • intense pain in the anal area
  • formation of blood clots within hemorrhoids
  • extensive scar formation [sentinel pile]
  • fecal impaction
  • difficulty to sit and walk
  • discharge of pus from the anal area

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
