Possible polyp or fisure

Hi and welcome. Well,pain and burning may persist for some time even if hemorrhoids are not present anymore. However there may be another cause such as polyps or anal fissure so you should do prctologist exam for further treatment. Regards

Is there anything to help polyps or anal fissures.

Answered by Dr. Ivan R. Rommstein 19 hours later
Brief Answer:
yes, please see the detailed answer below

Detailed Answer:
Hi and welcome.

Well, the fissure can be treated with Diltiazem cream, botulin injections or small surgical procedure.

Polyps require surgical procedure similar to hemorrhoids treatment. However, it would be good to establish the right diagnosis first by anoscopy.
