Symptoms of perianal disease
A perianal abscess is a collection of pus on or in your rectum. In my case, it’s inside. An abscess can be filled with pus and infection, and can spontaneously appear, sometimes creating a visible lump due to the swelling. It can cause intensely painful movement. The abscess is usually hot to the touch and sore.
Abscesses can lead to a fistula (tunneling through the rectum), which can lead to infection occurring once or repeatedly. These forced infection tunnels can push outward toward the surface, leading to more abscesses, bleeding, pain, swelling, and anal fissures.
