In brief: Fissure is painful
Most of the time fissure is located near tail bone , usually single with small skin tag , very painful, small amount of fresh blood after deification.
Seen in young adults most of the time will heal in few wks to months. Hemorrhoids painless in early stages, bleed a lot, late stages can not be reduced , very painful, you may have a fissure see your physician make sure no tumor.

In brief: Fissures
Fissures feel like ground glass.
Hemorrhoids tend be more painful when thrombosed. Adjust your diet and see a good proctologist.
