Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

My sister faced the problem of piles five years back, which got resolved with a good diet and medications. But she has a small flesh in the anal region, maybe an anal fistula. It does not generally cause pain except at the time of her period. Also, the flesh does not create any problems at all. Is it safe, or do we need to follow anything to sort this out? Kindly help.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

A flash bulge at the anal verse indicates piles or sentinel tags. In the case of a fistula, fluids ooze with irritation; however, in the case of tissue in the anus region, there is pain and burning after defecation. Therefore, the line of treatment depends on the condition. As you mentioned, she has a history of piles, so there is a possibility of reoccurring piles. Hence, once again, she should follow the previous diet and lifestyle.

Thank you.

Treatment plan

I would suggest some Ayurvedic medicines, which work well in piles.

Preventive measures

Avoid spicy and fried junk foodstuffs. Drink plenty of lukewarm water regularly. Do regular kapalbhati, mandukasana, and ardhamatyendrasana.
