Can Fissures Cause Cancer
Hope this helps!

Cancer can begin anywhere in the body and is usually related to one or more genetic mutations that allow normal cells to become malignant by interfering with internal cellular control mechanisms, such as programmed cell death or by preventing ...Read more
How likely for fissure to turn or cause anal cancer? Was Dx 1 yr ago w internal hemorroid, now think fissure that's been there long time. Scared of CA
Why do you ask?: Please forgive my frankness. Don't try to make the distinction yourself. A suspicion of either is sufficient reason to see your personal physician without delay. A fissure tends to be painful while a cancer tends to produce a mass that will be less painful early-on, but this is unreliable. You need to be seen. Best wishes. ...Read more
I had fissures for 7 years...I get pain in my colon, left side - it's like...A dull achy but noticeable pain. Are these linked? Cancer? I'm 17 year old
I have anal fissures they are healing had it for a month doc did colonoscopy found no cancer saw hemorrhoids what is hemorrhoid banding?
Leaving hemmorhoid: As an anal fissure heals and complications from a hemmorhoid occur, the older procedure was to do hemmorhoidectomy or excise the hemmorhoid and approximated anal skin in a way not to cause stricture. Many now elevate the hemmorhoid and place a tight rubber band at the base until the lesion virtually sloughs off. ...Read more
Does fissure and rectal cancer have similar symptoms? My dad is having fissure & I wanted to know the difference between the symptoms of both of these
Similar Symptoms: Both the fissure and rectal cancer are in the rectum and can cause pain, bleeding, frequent bowel movements. Since the symptoms can be similar, a person needs to have a colonoscopy to visualize the area and the fissure looks like a tear in the lining of the rectum and the other is a mass that looks abnormal and needs a biopsy. ...Read more
Not likely.: Anal cancer can result from chronic irritation from condyloma acuminata, perianal fissures/fistulae, chronic hemmorrhids, leukoplakia, and trauma from anal intercourse. This presents with a triad of bleeding, pain, and perianal mass. Anal fissures, by themselves, do not lead to cancer, but if they are caused by some chronic process (anal intercourse), the epithelium react and can become cancer. ...Read more

Fissure won't heal, 7+ years don't want surgery. Red fresh blood. Can this be cancer, under 20 years old. Hi fibre diet stops pain and blood on toilet?
Might need surgery,,: Although this is highly unlikely to be cancer at this point, given your age, it might become cancer later in life, especially if it doesn't heal. A high fiber diet is a great help for this as are sitz baths, but if it hasn't improved for 7+ years and bleeds regularly, surgery might be the last and best option. It would be wise to see your doctor about this and discuss therapy. Best of luck. ...Read more

Had rectal bleeding for a few weeks 2.5 years ago. No bleeding since. Dr said it was likely fissure that healed. Would colon cancer continue to bleed?
Rectal bleeding: If your rectal bleeding has come back, then okay to get in to your doc for evaluation. More likely this is a hemorrhoid or recurrent fissure. Cancer in your age group is very low incidence. However, an exam under anesthesia will lead to a diagnosis, and treatment. Good luck. ...Read more

Blood in stool past 2 weeks, no pain, does seem to have anal fissure that is healing but still some blood streaks should I be about cancer?
Cancer not common: Blood per rectum is abnormal. Seems that you have explained it with the fissure.
