Fissure, spicy food: A warm feeling or mild burn may come from a number of different causes, none of which are particularly harmful or dangerous. Anal fissures or tears can often occur and present as bleeding, pain or burning. A dermatitis or rash may also cause it. Spicy foods, and caffeine can also produce this feeling. Start a daily fiber supplement like benefiber but check with a doc if it doesn't resolve.

Explain further: Do you mean you get a small amount of green bilious materail with a sour bitter taste in the back of your mouth a few times a month or do you actually vomit this up? This could be just gerd or it could be something more serious. I strongly suggest that you see a gastroenterologist in your area asap.

The billiary-tree: The liver manufactures/breaks down heme/red cells forming billlirubin/bile which is then transported via the "billiary tree" as pictured here and then stored in the gallbladder. It is a rather complex but fascinating process (i like to think the liver is the most important organ in our body). Have fun learning. If you have gallbladder trouble, consult doc. Good luck.

Chemical properties: Biliverdin is a green tetrapyrrolic bile pigment, and is a product of heme/redcell breadown. Biliverdin is further broken down to bilirubin for easier excretion to the outside world (also into urobilinogen in urine-as mild yellow). This compound absorbs green light, thus appears green to your eyes! (put in dard room=brown/black). I think u maybe asking why u threw up green? Consult doc. Good luck.

I don't understand: Your question doesn't make sense. Bile is a normal substance made in your body to dissolve fats from your food. So "cause of bile" doesn't make any sense.
