Is Surgery For An Anal Fistula More Painful Than Just Leaving The Fistula Alone
No: Typically a fistula is a chronic inflammatory "tunnel" between the anus and the skin. There are many types, many treatments, and the most common surgery involves literally "filetting" open the tract to allow it to heal by itself, and thus obliterate the tunnel.

Is there any non-surgical way of treating an internal anal wart that is just barely an inch inside the anus? Does it need to even be treated at all
Is it possible to have an anal fistula that is only an inch long? Connects from top of healing fissure (no pain) & pus drains/collects nearby
Yes: Absolutely. This happens. As a fissure is healing, it can form a small subcutaneous sinus that becomes a fistula. I have seen that several times.

Which is the more invasive and uncomfortable of the 2 dental procedures if there ever were a choice of either: internal or external sinus lift?
Internal: An external sinus lift is considered to be the more invasive of the two procedures. It is a larger incision. Both are effective ways of increasing bone volume for the placement of implants. Pain is very subjective to an individual and is difficult to predict but it can be managed and minimized by your surgeon. I would chose the internal sinus bump if it met your restorative goals. ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers

Is it the norm to get scheduled for a colonoscopy for hemorrhoids without anyone even checking visually for hemorrhoids? This procedure is costly.
Not the norm ...: But it all depends on the specific scenario & what symptoms are reported. If there is bright red rectal bleeding, nothing else, in a 35 year old, physical exam for hemorrhoids would come first. But if there are additional symptoms, and the person is of the age/risk level to need a colonoscopy for screening, then that procedure would be recommended. It is prudent to question these kinds of tests ...Read more
