Your rectum is the lower portion of your colon, where stool forms. If the rectum dribs out of its normal place within the body and shoves out of the anal opening, the disorder is called rectal prolapse. In the primary stages, a prolapse might happen only after a bowel movement. The protuberant rectum might then slide back through the anal canal on its own. Over time, however, the prolapse might become more severe and could necessitate surgery. Rectal prolapse is thought to be instigated by circumferential intussusception of the upper rectum and recto sigmoid colon.
Rectal prolapse is generally triggered by a weakening of the muscles that support the rectum.
Symptoms of rectal prolapse consist of:
- Feeling a protuberance after coughing, sneezing, or lifting
- Having mucous discharge in your stool
- Pain and rectal bleeding
- Fecal incontinence
- Having to shove the prolapse back into the anus by hand
- Feeling heaviness in your rectum
- Being constipated
- Having anal pain, bleeding or itching
Although less common in Western civilizations, pediatric rectal prolapse is a comparatively common benign complaint in kids. However, without appropriate treatment, it can become a lifestyle-limiting, chronic complaint. Most circumstances are self-limiting, characterized by quick resolution with institution of conservative measures intended at rectifying associated underlying problems. Rectal prolapse in children is thought to start as mucosal prolapse starting at the mucocutaneous junction, which may ultimately progress to full-thickness prolapse.
