Anal Fissure

An anal fissure is a cut or tear occurring in the anus (the opening through which stool passes out of the body) that extends upwards into the anal canal. They affect men and women equally and both the young and the old. Fissures usually cause pain during bowel movements that often is severe.

Anal fissure is the most common cause of rectal bleeding.

Symptoms of Anal Fissure

  • A sharp, stinging, or burning pain during bowel movement. Pain from a fissure may be quite severe. It can be brief or last for several hours after a bowel movement.
  • Itching in anal region.
  • Bleeding. You may see a small spot of bright red blood on toilet tissue or a few drops in the toilet bowl. The blood from a fissure is separate from the stool. (Very dark, tarry stools or dark red blood mixed with stool may be a sign of a more serious problem.) Tell your doctor if you have any bleeding with a bowel movement.

Sometimes an anal fissure may be a painless wound that won't heal. It may bleed from time to time but cause no other symptoms.

Anal fissures are caused by injury or trauma to the anal canal. Injury can happen when:

  • You pass a large stool.
  • You are constipated and try to pass a hard stool.
  • You have repeated diarrhea
  • You give birth. (Childbirth can cause trauma to the anal canal.)

Fissures can also be caused by a rectal exam, anal intercourse, or a foreign object. In some cases, a fissure may be caused by Crohn's disease.
