Piles and Anal Fissure: Awareness Is a Must!

Are you feeling pain in lower rectum and near the anus since a few days? If you see blood on your stool in addition to this pain, you might be suffering from haemorrhoids (piles) or an anal fissure. Although the symptoms may seem similar, there’s a difference between the two. While anal fissure is a tiny tear in the anus causing the formation of a linear ulcer at the boundary of the anus, piles involves swollen blood vessels near the anus, forming a protrusion to the outside.

Piles and fissure are those conditions wherein patients may have complaint of itching and bleeding. They have to suffer from a lot of pain, secretions and inability to sit down comfortably. Such lifestyle diseases affecting the anorectal health of individuals are usually intolerable. However, people take a lot of time before they finally open up before specialists about the intensity of the problem. Often traditional remedies are tried to relieve such conditions.
