Anal fissure or Fissure-in-ano is a kind of longitudinal cut (linear ulcer) at the anal canal outer anterior and posterior margins (skin-lined part) which is formed when a person suffering from constipation passes hard stool with strain. It is extremely painful ano-rectal condition which lead sufferer into stress and anxiety. The person is so much distressed that he/she develops fear for passing stool. This tendency however adds to his problem as it further aggravates the problem of constipation.
- The anal canal always full of microorganisms i.e. it is always lodged with infection.
- The passage of hard stool during the act of defaecation prevents it from healing easily.
In acute stage the fissure is extremely painful and may bleed frequently but if ignored for a long time for more than 7-8 months, it gets partially healed up and a skin growth known as sentinel tag or sentinel pile surrounds it. This sentinel tag further hinder the complete healing of the underlying fissure or cut.
