What are symptoms of rectal prolapse?

What are symptoms of rectal prolapse?

Anal mass: Rectal prolapse is the passage of a part of the rectum out through the anus. The patient usually becomes aware of something hanging out when it is time to wipe. Early on it may "reduce", or go back in, on it's own but as it enlarges it may need to be pushed back. Initially will only come out with bowel movements but later will come out with coughing etc. Usually will need surgery.

Are the symptoms of rectal prolapse bad?

Evaluation: First you need evaluation to differentiate mucosal prolapse from true complete rectal prolapse. If surgery is required after medical management fails, the correct surgery will be anything from a hemorrhoidectomy to an abdominal procedure and partial colon resection. So, please be sure of the diagnosis before consenting to surgery.

What are symptoms of an Internal rectal prolapse?

What are symptoms of an Internal rectal prolapse?

A rectal prolapse: Occurs when part or all of the wall of the rectum slides out of place, sometimes protruding from the anus. In an internal prolapse, the rectum does not protrude outside the anus. There may be some pain and changes in stool consistency or passage. Treatment involves changes in diet or sexual practices, medicine such as stool softener, or surgery depending on severity. I hope this helps.

What are the most common symptoms of rectal prolapse? Do I need to have all of them to really have it?

What it says...: Most common is "mass protruding through the anus" and most are not painful at all; typically protrudes with defication/straining and retracts when done (mild cases). More severe case may need physical "pushing back in". It may progress and get really severe and pushing back no longer adequate, which then will require surgical reduction/pin-up surgery. Consult your doc. Colorectal doc. Good luck.

I had complete rectal prolapse, 3 years ago I had laparoscopic rectopexy. Now I have above symptoms & I feel lump kinda thing at the entrance while whipping after excretion. Is it a sign of recurrence? If yes, wat r chances of full prolapse again?

Better to have this: Evaluated by your physician/ previous surgeon than to ask an unknown provider on a medical education site. We can't examine you, take a full history, get radiographic or lab studies. HealthTap providers would be ill -equipped to determine if you have a recurrence. Get eval soon & be well.

I am 21 and have internal rectal prolapse, should I consider getting surgery? Would it fix the issue, what could go wrong?

Rectal prolapse: Most rectal prolapses cause some external protrusion through the anus and don't require surgery. An internal prolapse is more complicated and requires evaluation and advice by a colorectal surgeon. Avoidance of constipation and avoiding straining for a bowel movement using stool softeners may not be enough to prevent symptoms or further damage.

What can I do for my rectal prolapse without going to a doctor?

Variable: Some people with rectal prolapse will have pain with bowel movements, most will have occasional bright red blood from the rectum due to irritation of the prolapsed rectal mucosa, and many will have soiling or a mucous type discharge from the prolapse. Stool softeners and increased fiber in the diet may help, but significant rectal prolapse often requires surgical correction.

Should I go to school if I have a rectal prolapse?

As long: Aas you can reduce the prolapse after a bm and do not have excessive soilage issues, going to school is not a problem. But if the prolpase continues, the sooner you get it confirmed and treated the better the long term result you will have. Long term prolapse can be associated with loss of sphincter muscle tone and hence can cause variable degrees of incontinence.

What causes rectal prolapse in men?

Straing or rectal ma: Rectal prolapse is not common in men but when it occurs, it is usually from chronic diarrhea and straining at the stool. Rectal prolapse should usually be repaired by an experienced surgeon as there are several different techniques which can be applied depending on patient factors such as age, debility, assessment of anal sphincter tone and squeeze, etc. Colonoscopy is necessary.
