This is usually the result of an infection that originates in an anal gland and causes an abscess – a swollen pocket of infected tissue and fluid. The fistula forms a tunnel under the skin and connects with the infected gland.

These muscles are tightened, when the individuals need to hold in a bowel movement and become relaxed when a bowel movement is passed.

Pelvis Floor Problems (pelvic floor dysfunction) is the term that includes a variety of disorders that occur when pelvic floor muscles and ligaments are impaired.
Your pelvic floor is the group of muscles and ligaments in your pelvic region. The pelvic floor acts like a sling to support the organs in your pelvis — including the bladder, rectum, and uterus or prostate. Contracting and relaxing these muscles allows you to control your bowel movements, urination, and, for women particularly, sexual intercourse.
Pelvic floor dysfunction forces you to contract your muscles rather than relax them. As a result, you may experience difficulty having a bowel movement.
If left untreated, pelvic floor dysfunction can lead to discomfort, long-term colon damage, or infection.
A pilonidal sinus (PNS) is a small hole or tunnel in the skin that may get filled with fluid or pus, leading to the formation of a cyst or abscess. It usually affects men, in the crease of the buttocks, from the bottom of the spine to the anus. A pilonidal cyst usually contains hair, dirt, and debris. It can cause severe pain, become infected, ooze pus and blood. A pilonidal sinus may also emit a foul odor.
Rectal prolapse is a medical condition in which the rectum starts to push through the anus. The rectum is that last part of your large intestine, and the anus is the opening through which stool exits your body.

Transanal minimally invasive surgery (TAMIS) is a specialized minimally invasive approach to removing benign polyps and some cancerous tumors within the rectum and lower sigmoid colon. The benefit of TAMIS is that it is considered an organ-sparing procedure, and is performed entirely through the body’s natural opening, requiring no skin incisions to gain access to a polyp or tumor. This scar-free recovery provides a quick return to normal bowel function.
