Hi doctors, was just wondering what is a fissure on your colon and is it treatable?

In brief: Anal fissure

Anal fissures are essentially cracks in the lining of the anal canal that develop due to trauma, most commonly passage of dry hard stool.
It is definitely treatable. Many topical medications have been tried with varying success rates. A short surgical procedure called tailored lateral internal sphincerotomy has the best success rates.
