As a result of hard and dry defecation, small ruptures may occur in the rectal glands. These tears sometimes turn into wounds that cause swelling and abscesses in the anal region. These abscesses turn into Fistula over time.
It is very important to treat Anal Fistula disease without delay. Approximately 90% of these formed fistulas are simple structured fistulas. However, if these fistulas are neglected, the disease progresses over time and simple fistulas can become complicated fistulas. Treatment of complicated fistulas may be longer and more laborious than simple fistulas.
Anal Fistula disease may cause rash, swelling, severe pain during defecation, yellow discharge in the anal region, bleeding during defecation, blood loss in the stool and sensitization of the skin in the anal region.
