Anorectal Diseases Services

Anorectal diseases encompass a diverse group of pathological conditions that affect the anorectal region, which includes the anal canal and the rectum. These conditions often present with symptoms such as pain, bleeding, pruritus, or changes in bowel habits, and may significantly impact an individual's quality of life. Among the most prevalent anorectal diseases are hemorrhoids, anal fissures, perianal abscesses, and anal fistulas, each with distinct etiological factors and clinical manifestations.

Anal condyloma and cancer 

Anal condyloma and cancer are diseases that affect the anal region. Anal condylomas, or genital warts, are caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV) and can increase the risk of anal cancer. Anal cancer is a rare malignancy originating from the anal canal or perianal skin.


Anal fissures

Anal fissures are small tears or cracks in the lining of the anal canal. Often caused by constipation, diarrhea, or trauma, they can lead to pain, bleeding, and discomfort during bowel movements. Prompt treatment is essential to prevent complications.


Anorectal abscesses and fistulas

Anorectal abscesses and fistulas are interconnected conditions involving infection in the rectal and anal regions. Abscesses are pus-filled cavities that result from infection, while fistulas are abnormal connections between the rectum and skin. Both require medical intervention.



Hemorrhoids are swollen veins in the rectal and anal regions, causing discomfort, itching, and occasional bleeding. They can develop due to increased pressure during bowel movements, pregnancy, or obesity. Treatment options range from lifestyle changes to surgical intervention.


Rectal prolapse

Rectal prolapse occurs when the rectum's inner lining or entire rectal wall protrudes through the anus. This condition can cause pain, incontinence, and difficulty in bowel movements. Treatment typically involves surgery to restore the rectum to its normal position.


Rectovaginal fistulas

Rectovaginal fistulas are abnormal connections between the rectum and vagina, causing fecal matter to pass through the vagina. They can result from injury, infection, or surgery, and often require surgical repair to restore normal function.
