Anal Pain

Read in Hindi

Anal pain is medically known as proctalgia fugax. It is characterised by a small bout of pain in the rectum, which spreads to the anus. The pain generally occurs due to the narrowing of the anal canal caused by spasms of the smooth muscle cells. In several cases, anal fissures (tearing of anal skin), piles and abscesses (lump filled with pus) may also lead to pain in anus. In addition to that, inflammatory bowel syndrome, coccydynia (pain in tailbone), prostate gland inflammation and anal cancer may also give rise to anal pain. Proper treatment helps people to stay away from this unbearable situation.
