What causes the tear?
The anal canal is where the large intestine ends. Not very long in size, it is 1-2 inches in length and has two circular muscles that control the bowel movements, which help in holding the stool from leaking and releasing as needed. Fissures are usually caused when these linings and muscle get ruptured.
The bowel movement becomes restricted and hard when you have fissures. However, loose stools and diarrhea can also cause fissures. The rupture of the anal wall skin causes spasm like pain and burning sensation that becomes severe over a period. This muscle spasm results in low blood flow to the injury site which impairs the healing process of the wound.
Why does this rupture occur?
Anal lining tear occurs when you strain your bowel movement putting pressure on the muscles that regulate the bowel movements voluntarily and involuntarily during constipation.

4. A lump of skin hanging outwards near the tear.
