    Talk about being a literal pain in the rear!

    Characterised by a small tunnel that forms between the anal canal (anus) and the external buttock skin, an anal fistula is often caused by clogged anal glands. An infection will arise, resulting in a collection of pus in nearby tissue.

    As the pus drains, it can leave behind a channel between the bowel and the skin which is known as the anal fistula. This can cause unpleasant symptoms like:

    ⚠️ Painful bowel movement
    ⚠️ Pain and swelling around the anus
    ⚠️ Smelly discharge near the anus
    ⚠️ Fever and chills

    OUCH! Taking it a dump should not hurt this bad! 😫

    If you find yourself in such agony when passing large, hard stools or having frequent diarrhea, it is possible that you are suffering from an anal fissure. This means that there is a cut or tear in the lining of the anus.

    The fissure can be very painful and cause bleeding during and after bowel movements. In most cases, the tear heals on its own but for others, it may take longer with the help of treatment.

    Anal fissure that does not improve beyond 6 weeks should be addressed immediately. Get in touch by dropping us a DM or WhatsApp.

    What is a 5-lettered organ that is also known as the large intestine?

    It’s the COLON, of course! The colon plays a vital role in the body’s waste removal yet like most organs, it is also susceptible to the threat of cancer.

    Take steps to preserve the function of your colon and keep it cancer-free by:
    ✅ Sticking to a high fibre diet
    ✅ Staying physically active
    ✅ Drink enough water
    ✅ Limit your alcohol intake
    ✅ Quit smoking

    Most importantly, get screened for colon cancer especially if you are over 50 years.

    Notice a sudden change in your bowel habits?

    There are a few possible health conditions responsible for this, and one of them is colorectal cancer. This can happen when the cells in the colon or rectum grow out of control and start affecting nearby organs.

    As it develops, you may experience symptoms like:
    😩 Diarrhoea or constipation
    😩 Rectal bleeding or blood in stool
    😩 Abdominal pain
    😩 A feeling that your bowel does not empty properly

    Get your colon screened early and regularly before these symptoms develop. Drop us a DM or Whatsapp to schedule an appointment today!
