India’s Eminent Laparoscopic Surgeon for Piles and Fissure Dr Amita Jain shares the warning signs of anal fissures

India’s eminent laparoscopic surgeon Dr. Amita Jain says, an anal fissure is a tear in the lining of the anal canal, which is the last part of the human digestive tract. This tear often causes immense pain during bowel movements besides itching and bleeding, and sometimes it may also cause foul-smelling discharge.

Anal fissures pain may linger for several minutes or even hours after the patient passes the stool. The patient may also witness blood in their stool. Anal fissures are common and can develop at any age.

Common Causes of Anal Fissure

When a person’s anal canal stretches beyond its limit, it tears and forms a fissure. This stretching of the anal canal may be due to:

  • Passing inconsistent hard, large stool during bowel movements
  • Constipation, inconsistent or unusual bowel movements
  • Chronic diarrhea
  • Overstretching of the opening of the anus during the time of childbirth.

Symptoms of a Fissure

Surgeon Dr Amita Jain says there could any of the following things that may indicate towards fissure:

  • Burning or Itching
  • Painful Motion
  • Bloody Stool
  • Tear or cut in anus skin
  • Discomfort when urinating
  • Feeling of full bowel even post the passing of stools several times

Treatment of Anal Fissure

Mild conditioned anal fissures commonly can heal with treatment focused on softening stools and prevention of constipation. In addition to recommending a stool softener, patients are also encouraged to drink plenty of water and take a fiber-rich diet.

However, a severe anal fissure may require more aggressive treatment such as surgery to stop the muscle spasms, thereby allowing the tear to heal.
