Anal Fissure Expanded Information | ASCRS
Skin tags are usually small, soft, and benign growths that occur on the face and body. They can range from a few millimeters in size, to the size of a grape. Overall, when diagnosed correctly, they are harmless. Getting them removed with a safe and proven procedure is usually the right move. Skin tags in the anus are different from those elsewhere on the body.
How should anal skin tags be removed?
An anal fissure fissure-in-ano is a small, oval shaped tear in skin that lines the opening of the anus. Fissures typically cause severe pain and bleeding with bowel movements. Fissures are quite common in the general population, but are often confused with other causes of pain and bleeding, such as hemorrhoids. Anal fissures can occur at any age and have equal gender distribution.
Hemorrhoids are anal blood vessels that are a normal part of your anatomy. They can be internal—blood vessels found in the moist tissue of the inner lining of the anus. They also can be external—blood vessels found under the skin just outside the anus.
