A:   A perianal sinus is blind ending tract near to the anal canal. It frequently occurs after a perianal abscess has beed drained. The sinus tract will need to be surgical removed under anesthesia. The surgeon will use his/her discretion whether to leave the wound open or to suture it. In either case, with the tract removed healing will take place and this should resolve all your symptoms.
