In brief: Anal Fistula
Anal fistula can cause pain, bleeding, discharge and infection.
They should be evaluated and treated by a surgeon skilled and comfortable with anorectal diseases. Fistula can be complicated or simple and may require more than one surgery. Fistula should be treated; they rarely resolve on their own.
