Anal Fissures which is not the topic for “Chai pe Characha” kind off nor it’s a topic for friends/family gathering because the people are ashamed of this problem to discuss with any.

As per the report, Anal fissures affect males and females equally; however, an anterior fissure is more likely to develop in women (25%) than in men (8%).  Although anal fissures are the most common cause of rectal bleeding in infants, they are primarily seen in young adults. Eighty-seven percent of people with a chronic anal fissure are between the ages of 20 and 60 years. Anal fissures in children may indicate sexual abuse.

In India, there are More than 1 million cases of anal fissure per year.

In fact, this potentially painful, debilitating, anxiety-provoking condition is quite common. If a fissure doesn’t heal on its own, it can usually be treated and recurrences prevented with conservative measures.

So here I’m going to discuss everything about anal fissure

Let’s start with

What is Anal Fissure?

An anal fissure is a small tear in the thin, moist tissue (mucosa) that lines the anus. An anal fissure may occur when you pass hard or large stools during a bowel movement. Anal fissures typically cause pain and bleeding with bowel movements. You also may experience spasms in the ring of muscle at the end of your anus (anal sphincter).

The pain can be really bad and tends to be worse when you pass stools (faeces) and for an hour or so after passing stools. You may also get some bleeding when you pass stools – usually bright red, in the pan or on the toilet paper. Bleeding from the back passage should always be checked by a doctor.
