6 doctors agree
In brief: Most common
As the large hard stools pass through the anal opening it may cause a tear, that is the fissure.

In brief: Big/bulky/fast
The anus is like a purse string.
The tissues stretch out to allow stool to pass. If the stool diameter is too large , has big lumps or pushes out too fast, the event will tear the tissue & create a fissure.
