Anus diseases and treatment

(An overview of anorectal diseases)

The human body’s digestive system begins at the mouth and ends at the anus and rectum. In your body, the anus and rectum act as exit points where solid waste is expelled after digestion has absorbed water and nutrients. This part of the body gets infected just like other body parts, leading to certain diseases. Let’s see about anus diseases and treatment for it in this blog.

What is anorectal disease?

Anorectal diseases are conditions that affect the anus and/or rectum. The anal canal is surrounded by several muscles that work to control bowel movements. In order to close the anal canal, the inner muscle right below the lining of the anal canal usually gets contracted.

The muscle relaxes to allow the stool to pass during a bowel movement. The structure of the body, diet, lifestyle, and bacteria found in waste produced by the body can all contribute to anorectal diseases. Anal fissures, haemorrhoids (piles), perineal fistula, and anal warts are common anorectal diseases.

Anal fissures

The lining of the anus has small tears called anal fissures. Hard, dry bowel motions, diarrhoea, and inflammation might all be the root cause of these tears. The common symptoms of anal fissures are itching, discomfort, and bleeding. As the condition worsens, constipation could also happen.

Haemorrhoids (Piles)

The rectum and anus tissues swell and inflame, which results in haemorrhoids. Haemorrhoids can be internal (inside your anus) or external (under the skin surrounding your anus). The major causes of haemorrhoids are age, pregnancy, obesity and straining during bowel movements. The common symptoms of haemorrhoids are pain and irritation around your anus, Itching, and bright red blood in your stool.

Perianal fistula

A perianal fistula is a form of anorectal malformation (ARM) which includes a misplaced anal passage that gets reduced. Usually, it is present from birth. Children born with this condition may exhibit symptoms such as not passing stool for the first few days after birth, passing stool through a misplaced opening and missing or misplaced anus.

One another common variety present in the adult population is due to ruptured or inadequately treated perianal abscess. This perianal fistula presents with pus discharge from an opening near the anus which has a track of communication with the anal canal. Perianal fistula can be treated with traditional open or laser operation.

Anal warts

Anal warts develop on the skin around the anus. Human papillomavirus (HPV) is responsible for this condition. (HPV). Since anal warts are not painful and don’t produce noticeable signs, some people don’t know they have them. While, some may have itching, bleeding or moisture in the anal area.


Both traditional and laser surgery can be done to treat the above anorectal diseases. Depending on your health condition and wish, your doctor may recommend the most favourable one. Compared to traditional surgery laser surgery is preferred most because of its benefits.

The laser method uses high-energy light beams. The purpose of the procedure is to burn or cut the anomaly with this light beam. Modern laser treatments are highly advanced, considerably safer, and less painful.
