Anorectal disorders are all the illnesses which are located in the anal and rectal portions of the large intestine. Hemorrhoids is an anorectal disease and so is anorectal cancer. While hemorrhoids are benign, anorectal cancer can be fatal.
Faecal incontinence, proctalgia fugax, excessive perineal descent, and pruritus ani, are other anorectal disorders which can affect men and women of all ages.
The symptoms of most anorectal disorders are nonspecific, that can make their diagnosis difficult. That is the reason anorectal disorders should not be taken lightly and treated a with priority. We bring you a snapshot of a few most common anorectal diseases for empowering you with knowledge so that you can stay healthy.
A few common anorectal disorders are:
1. Hemorrhoids: These are large, sack-like blood vessels which are located in and around the anus. These can also be found in the lower rectum or the portion of the large intestine just above the anus.
Causes: They are caused due to ageing, chronic constipation, diarrhea, pregnancy, not getting enough fibre and irregular eating habits.
Symptoms: Bleeding while defecation, pain and protrusion of the haemorrhoid and most of these do not respond well to non-surgical treatments such as increasing intake of dietary fibre and avoiding constipation. Surgical treatment is thus advised for patients who continue to have severe bleeding, pain or protrusion due to hemorrhoids. Treatments: Common surgical treatments for severe hemorrhoids are:
Rubber band ligation- This is an outpatient procedure.
Hemorrhoidectomy- This is a surgery to remove hemorrhoids and it is the best method for permanent removal of hemorrhoids. It may require hospitalization and a period of inactivity.
2. Anal Fissures: This is a small tear in the lining of the anus. Anal fissures cause pain, bleeding and itching around the anus.
Causes: Anal fissures are caused due to hard, dry stools, diarrhea and inflammation in the anorectal area.
Surgical options are:
- Surgical repair: Repair of the anal tear.
- Internal sphincterotomy: This consists of a small operation to relieve the underlying muscle spasm, which is actually contributing to the anal fissure.
3. Anorectal Abscesses: This is an infected cavity which is filled with pus and found near the anus or rectum.
Causes: Usually, such abscesses occur when bacteria or faecal matter enters the tissue outside the anus.
Symptoms: Superficial anal abscesses are often associated with:
- Pain, which is usually constant, throbbing, and worse when sitting down.
- Skin irritation around the anus, including swelling, redness, and tenderness.
- Discharge of pus.
- Constipation or pain associated with bowel movements.
Treatment: The treatment of an abscess is surgical drainage under most circumstances.
4. Anal Fistula: Anal fistula is the name given to a small, abnormal tunnel connecting the anal glands. From this tunnel, the abscess comes out onto the skin outside the anus. Bowel diseases such as Crohn's disease and colitis are linked to an increase in the likelihood of anal abscesses and fistulas.
Symptoms: Pain, irritation of the skin around the anus, pus, fever and swelling.
Treatment: Usually involves surgically draining pus from the infected cavity and, also making an opening in the skin near the anus for removing the pus cells.
Fistulotomy: This is a surgical treatment to cure anal fistula. and can be performed on an outpatient.

Tea is an addiction for many, and luckily not the worst one to have. A cup of hot tea in the morning and another one in the afternoon is more than enough to get you through the rest of the day. It is not only beneficial but also recommended. If taken in moderate amounts, this comforting beverage has some remarkable benefits.
Benefits of drinking tea-
- Tea can hydrate your body and can be beneficial especially when one suffers from diarrhea and needs fluids in the body.
- Some teas contain ingredients such as herbs like cascara and senna, which have natural laxative properties and may help in relieving constipation.
- Black and green tea contains essential oils and polyphenols that may aid digestion by stimulating the gastric acids thus reducing flatulence and negative digestive symptoms such as diarrhea and vomiting.
- A cup of rose tea in the morning stimulates your body’s production of bile, which aids in the digestion of food. It works as a mild laxative and is often used as an effective natural remedy for constipation.
- The antioxidants in tea can help the body to fight cancer of the colon, stomach, small intestine, pancreas and liver.
But, having bed-tea, first thing in the morning - is it a healthy practice that most Indian households possess? Yes, most of you are habituated to have bed-tea as soon as you wake up. You love to start your day with a piping hot cup. Though it is a great way to soothe your soul, relax your mind, makes a wonderful beverage to enjoy with friends, perfect welcome drink to guests, however, is it really a good idea to kick-start your morning with tea? Think again!
Well, this is just NOT an ideal way to begin your day - both for your body and your teeth. Your oral cavity and hygiene contribute a lot towards your health and overall well-being. Here are reasons to avoid morning bed-tea.
Reasons why you should not drink tea in the morning-
- Drinking tea, in the morning can cause stomach inflammation and it may lead to infection and feeling of nausea.
- Drinking tea can affect the bile juice secretion in your stomach and can also cause nausea and nervousness because of the empty stomach.
- Tea increases the level of acid in the stomach. Gulping down a cup of hot tea would mean washing down bacteria from your mouth and sending them down to your gut can upset your stomach.
- When tea washes down bacteria from mouth to the gut, it interferes with the functioning of the good bacteria and might cause problems in metabolism, disrupting the acid-alkaline balance in the stomach. This may result in constipation.
- A chemical in tea known as theophylline has a dehydrating effect on stools passing through the intestines, resulting in constipation.
So, drink your way to good health... avoid morning your tea in bed and stay healthy! In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
