Brief Answer:
No position does not have any specific significance.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thank you for asking at healthcaremagic.

I carefully read your question and understand your concern.

A fissure is a crack or tear in the skin. However if not treated properly it changes into fistula which acts as small pipes which connects anal skin to deep anal glands.
However location as such has no effect on treatment or prognosis of patient.
Regards!
