Going to the toilet in the morning is a nightmare for some people. If going to the toilet is painful for hours or days then there is something serious. If there is blood in the stool or on toilet paper or there is pain near the anal area then people may consider it as piles or hemorrhoids. But there is another common possibility of Anal Fissures. Though symptoms of both the piles and fissure are similar but both the conditions are quite different.

Anal Fissure vs Hemorrhoids - Symptoms

An anal fissure is a cut near the anal area and is painful only during the bowel movement whereas hemorrhoids are swollen blood vessels.

Anal Fissures usually occur when a person has tight sphincter muscle and suffers from frequent constipation or diarrhea. Hemorrhoids or piles occur when there is increased pressure on the blood vessels and can occur internally within the anal opening or externally near the anal area.

Treatment options for Hemorrhoids and Anal Fissures

Both hemorrhoids or piles and anal fissures can be treated using medications or ayurvedic treatment if they are at the initial stage. At Healing Hands Clinic, MCDPA regimen is used for the treatment of piles and fissures. In this medication, diet, physiotherapy and ayurvedic oils are used for the treatment. Pelvic floor exercises are recommended for strengthening pelvic floor muscles.

But if the disease advances, then laser surgery is recommended.

Depending upon the grade of piles or hemorrhoids, grade 3 can be treated using LHP (Laser Hemorrhoidoplasty) procedure, grade 4 using MIPH (Minimally Invasive Procedure for Hemorrhoids). Grade 1 and early stages of grade 2 are treated through MCDPA.

Chronic Fissures are treated using Laser Sphincterotomy. This laser procedure is done using Leonardo laser.

One should not figure out the disease at home. If you are facing any of the symptoms like blood in stool or pain during bowel movements then you must consult the colorectal surgeon on time.
