This month we delve into High-Resolution Anoscopy (HRA), a milestone in the diagnosis and management of anal lesions. This advanced technique provides a detailed image of the anal mucosa, enabling healthcare professionals to identify lesions, inflammatory conditions, and neoplasms early on.
Proctological disorders are not limited to the physical impact alone but also involve the emotional and psychological side.

Colorectal cancer is a tumour that forms in the tissues of the colon (the longest part of the large intestine) or rectum (the part of the large intestine closest to the anus). It is one of the most common cancers, particularly in the Western world, but mortality is decreasing thanks to prevention, screening and increasingly effective treatments.
The anal fissures are lacerations, or small linear cuts, which are formed at the border between the skin and the anal canal with a tendency to chronicize. Let’s see together the causes that lead to the onset of this pathology, the pains and related disorders, the diagnosis and available treatments.

In this month’s curiosity article, we delve into fistulas, which are pathological tubular lesions that connect the site of infection with the surrounding skin. It serves as an introductory article to next month’s appointment, which will be entirely dedicated to anal fistulas.
The pelvic floor during and after pregnancy undergoes strong pressure and hormonal changes: it is stressed by the increase in weight and strength, by the increase in muscle tension, by lacerations during childbirth.
