Effective Treatment for Anal Fissures
Anal fissures are small tears in the tissue around the anus, which is known as the mucosa. These fissures are commonly caused by passing hard or difficult stools. A gastroenterologist can diagnose anal fissures either through observation or during an examination. In the case of the latter, the examination can prove too painful for the patient, which is why it is important to consult with a gastroenterologist who can provide an accurate diagnosis through observation alone.

What are the Symptoms and Causes of Anal Fissures?
The anus has limited elasticity, which means small tears can occur when passing hard or difficult stools. If left untreated, these tears of the mucosa will result in stinging pain, involuntary bowel movements, spasms of the sphincter muscle and the potential for infections. It is important that you do not ignore anal fissures, as the stools which caused the tissue to tear may be indicative of a more serious internal condition.
