Fissure (fissure-IN-ANO)

Fissure-in-ano is a tear in the lining of the anal tract carcinoma, which causes 

pain during defecation. Fissures are usually caused by spending hard stools, but 

can also be caused by Crohn’s disease, trauma and anal cancer. Changes in diet

Fistula is an abnormal connection between two epithelial surfaces, but generally 

in this condition fistula is a hole on the cutaneous surface near the anus. 

Fistulas are common in Crohn’s disease. If surgical intervention is considered, 

the channel is left open to allow the secondary wound healing process.

Hemorrhoids (hemorrhoids)

Hemorrhoids are varicose veins in the lower rectum or anus. Internal hemorrhoids 

are from the top of the internal anal sphincter. Sometimes hemorrhoids is quite 

large, making it stand out from the anus and dilated (ie external hemorrhoids), 

mengonstriksi and painful. Hemorrhoids can arise due to constipation experienced

drainage, and let the wound remains open. Healing is done by secondary wound 

healing process.


Occur in the mucosa and polyps, small protrusions that resemble a benign tumor. 

Polyps most often occur in the sigmoid colon and rectum, and occurs more 

frequently in individuals over the age of 50 years. A condition known as familial 

polyposis, if there is a lot of polyps in the colon, which are considered 

precancerous polyps so that management is by surgical removal.

Pruritus ani
