What are the differences between piles, fistula and fissure

Piles/Hemorrhoids are swollen veins in the rectum or anus. They are caused by the pressure of sitting on your bottom for a long time. If you sit on your bottom for too long, the veins can become inflamed and irritated. The veins then start to swell and get bigger. This is called “piles” or “hemorrhoids”.

Fistula is a condition where there is a communication between the abdominal cavity and the outside world. The most common place for fistulas to form is the vagina, but they can form in other places as well. In males, fistulas are usually caused by an injury or surgery in which blood vessels are damaged. They are also associated with abscesses and abscesses can spread to other parts of the body.

Fissure is a hole in the skin that has formed between two layers of tissue. The hole may be small or large depending on how deep it is located. It is usually located in the anal canal but can also occur at other locations such as around the vagina or vulva (the area where female genitals begin). When you have fissures, it means that your body has gone through some kind of trauma (like surgery) which has caused an opening in one of your tissues.

 

What are the Causes of Piles/Haemorrhoids?

Here are some of the causes of Piles

  • Constipation
  • Using tight-fitting clothing around the anus and rectum, such as pantyhose, leggings, briefs, undergarments and others.
  • Sitting on the toilet too long or not going to the bathroom frequently enough. This can also lead to straining while having a bowel movement which makes it easier for stool to become impacted and may cause an obstruction.
  • Straining during bowel movements which leads to pain or discomfort in your rectum or anus (but not always). This is especially true when you strain on an empty stomach.

What are the Causes of Fistula?

Here are some of the causes of Fistula

  • Obstetric fistulas occur during pregnancy and childbirth. They are usually caused by prolonged labor without adequate pain relief, or due to prolonged rupture of membranes (the thin membranes that surround a fetus).
  • Traumatic fistulas occur after injuries that cause damage to tissue surrounding the vagina or anus. This can happen when there is tearing of tissue or blood seeps through damaged tissue and into another area such as the urinary tract or abdominal cavity.
  • Functional fistulas occur when there is damage to tissue surrounding one area of your body and that area becomes infected with bacteria or other germs from another part of your body (called a reservoir).
