Your rectum is the last portion of your digestive system, at the end of your large bowel. It is where faeces (stools) gather before they pass through your anus as a bowel movement. The wall of your rectum is made up of three coatings, which are:
- the rectal wall lining (mucosa)
- a sheet of muscle (muscular is propria)
- fatty tissue neighboring your rectum (mesorectum)
If the wall of your rectum or part of its lining, branches out through your anus, this is called a rectal prolapse. It can occur when you are having a bowel movement. But, you might also notice it when you cough or sneeze, or even when you are doing commonplace activities, such as walking or standing up. Rectal prolapse is common in kids, generally before the age of four. It affects girls and boys correspondingly. Grown-ups can also develop rectal prolapse, particularly women over 60.
Types of rectal prolapse
There are three kinds of rectal prolapse.
- Full-thickness rectal prolapse is when portion of the wall of your rectum poles out through your anus. This is the most common category of rectal prolapse.
- Mucosal prolapse is when only the lining (mucosa) of your rectum pushes out through your anus.
- Internal rectal prolapse is when your rectum pleats in on itself but doesn’t thrust out through your anus. This is also recognized as an internal intussusceptions.
