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. ...Read more
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. ...Read more
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. ...Read more
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. ...Read more

Better to have this: Evaluated by your physician/ previous surgeon than to ask an unknown provider on a medical education site.

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

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.

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.

Long term prolapse can be associated with loss of sphincter muscle tone and hence can cause variable degrees of incontinence. ...Read more

Problem bulge: Prevention with stool softeners is the start. Once advanced enough it is treated surgically. Most of the time it is a bulge into the vagina (rectocele) and an outpatient vaginal surgery.

Vaginal surgery reduces the vaginal bulge and builds up the tissue b/w the anus and vagina to bolster. ...Read more
