The intestinal tract or bowel ends with the rectum. It ends with the anus — the opening to the outside of the body. There are several common problems, including hemorrhoids, that can occur in the area from the rectum to the anus. While almost everyone has heard of hemorrhoids, the other conditions are not so well known.
Anal abscess and fistula

Guest over a year ago. Josh over a year ago. Hey man. The irritation in your scar area might have not been caused by operation. It could've been just an irritation, as you mentioned, because of sitting too much. I suggest you to try and walk as much as you can concerning your scar and your damaged tissue. The thing about anal fistula surgery is that you can't let it happen twice, and you must take care about it.
An anal abscess is an infected cavity filled with pus found near the anus or rectum. Ninety percent of abscesses are the result of an acute infection in the internal glands of the anus. Occasionally, bacteria, fecal material or foreign matter can clog an anal gland and tunnel into the tissue around the anus or rectum, where it may then collect in a cavity called an abscess. An anal fistula also commonly called fistula-in-ano is frequently the result of a previous or current anal abscess.
Anal fistulas are generally common among those who have had an anal abscess. Treatment is usually necessary to reduce the chances of infection in an anal fistula, as well to alleviate symptoms. An anal fistula is defined as a small tunnel with an internal opening in the anal canal and an external opening in the skin near the anus. Anal fistulas form when an anal abscess, that's drained, doesn't heal completely.
