Digestion of food is an important part of living systems. Food absorption depends on the digestive system, which starts at the very point of ingestion i.e. the mouth. The digestive system extends all the way through the body and the process of digestion culminates at the anal opening where the waste product is excreted out of the body.

The excretion of waste is just as important of a process as any other. When there is a certain strain in bowel movements or abnormal growth near the anal opening, it can lead to various health conditions. Piles, Fissures and Fistula are all conditions related to the anal region of the body and can affect both men and women alike.

What are Piles, Fistulas and Fissures?

  • Piles

Piles are swollen veins in the rectum. These swollen veins may form a haemorrhoid-like structure internally in the anal canal.  

  • Fistula

An anal fistula is an abnormal canal in the lining of the anus.

  • Fissure

Fissures are tears or sharp cuts in the anal lining. Usually formed in patients with chronic constipation.


Piles, Fistulas and Fissures are conditions of the anal region which can be very discomforting to the patient and may cause embarrassment to the sufferer apart from pain. The symptoms of these conditions may look very similar to an untrained individual. Some of the common symptoms observed by patients suffering from these conditions are:

  • Painful bowel movement
