Can an anal fissure be bowel cancer? Had it for years recently got it treated. Just wondering. I get the classic fissure symptoms and 17 years old.

In brief: Absolutely not

May need special meds to promote healing, at least, regular sitz baths.

In brief: Highly unlikely

Most cancers are not pailful.
Given ur age it's even more unlikely. Given that u had "treatment" a physician would have examined u, so most likely, zero chance of cancer.
