I have anal pain and stool leakage after defecation for 9 months, dr said no fissure or piles. Could it be overgrowth of candida?

Alternate diagnoses. While possible, Candida overgrowth would not cause you above symptoms. Would need to rule out alternate conditions, such as a fistula or rectal prolapse. You need further tests, best with a gastroenterologist specializing in rectal disorders.

Alternate diagnoses. Your symptoms are definitely not normal and alternate diagnoses should be considered, specifically, a fistula, which is essentially a vicious tract formed directly to the skin, sometimes hard to visualize and/or rectal prolapse, that is sliding of the inner layer of the rectum outside during/after defecation. Try to avoid constipation, see a gastroenterologist specialized in rectal disorders. Read more...

Anal pain. The symptoms you have suggestive of sphincter spasm or the muscle around the anus is too tight or dysfunctional. It may be causing the issues with leaking and pain. Did the previous docs actually look inside with an instrument called proctoscope? If not I would recommend it. Also need to evaluate if you have constipation. This can lead to issues. So see Gastroenterology. Read more...

Stool leakage and anal pain after defecation, severe constipation. Dr said everything is normal, could it be internal piles or rectal prolapse? Wat to do

Stool leakage and. anal pain are NOT normal. Internal piles (hemorrhoids) can result from straining due to severe constipation but aren't visible on routine exam. Rectal prolapse could cause your symptoms but should be obvious on physical exam. The constipation itself can cause rectal pain and stool leakage. The source of the constipation & treatment for it needs to be addressed. Best wishes. Dr. Anne. Read more...
