This is something that has to be checked out ASAP. Your age, fatigue, anorexia, weight loss, and growth of multiple neck masses raises real concern over the possibility of lymphoma. It is not normal to have these masses in your neck for a year. I would seek the help of an experienced ENT who can obtain a thorough history and exam, and perform FNA ( fine needle aspiration) on the dominant neck mass. It should be sent for C & S, cytopathology, and flow-cytometry. Depending on the results, you may require open biopsy ( these are probably enlarging lymph nodes) for further characterization. If the doctor can't do this in the office, you can be sent to interventional radiology for ultrasound-guided FNA. You are not wasting anybody's time you must be seen. Wishing you the best.

What is the best treatment for rectal prolapse?

Rectal prolapse

Anus
if mild - it can be gently reduced and pushed back in - use a moist washcloth. Stool softeners may help prevent reoccurence. IF it continues to prolapse - generally surgery is required to remove the redundant tissue and "tack" the rectum up. Colon and Rectal surgeons are probably the best at this type of problem.
