The Telltale Symptoms of Anal Fissures
As with most of the issues that we treat here at NYBG Colorectal, anal fissures often begin with minor pain and discomfort. If they are left unaddressed, however, they can become much more serious and increasingly painful, and may even necessitate anal fissure surgery. When caught early enough, however, more conservative treatments can be very effective. The most common symptoms include:
- Burning, itching, and irritation
- Visible tears in the anus
- Bloody stool
- Pain during a bowel movement
- Pain that persists after a BM is complete
