What causes anal fissures?

Toby asked the Naked Scientists:
   
Dear Chris,

newbielink:http://www.thenakedscientists.com/HTML/podcasts/ [nonactive], thank you.

I have a question relating to anal fissures, I would like to know what causes them, how can they be treated, do they ever heal in full and are there foods that aggravate the fissure e.g. chilli.

Can anal fissures ever lead to other illness or conditions e.g., haemorrhoids (piles) or  colon cancer.

Many thanks,

Kind Regards

Toby

What do you think?
