Does anal fissure leads to rectal cancer?

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.
No. Anal fissure and rectal cancer are two completely different diseases. Anal fissure does not lead to rectal cancer.

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

Very different . These are two very different conditions and may be associated with underlying disease such as ulcerative colitis. However rectal cancer tends to be a growing painless mass with bleeding whereas a fissure is more of a wound that tend to be painful, irritated and/or inflammed. Neither should be ignored and dueto the difficulty of performing a self exam should be monitored by a physician with biopsy. Read more...
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.

Unlikely. Many other causes of your daughter's symptoms but cancer not likely. Sounds like your gastroenterologist wants to look at the inside of her colon, perhaps do some biopsies to try and figure out a proper diagnosis and treatment for her condition. Absolutely the correct thing to do. A difficult condition to have, esp for a 10 y/o little girl. My thoughts and prayers with your daughter and family. 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.
