In brief: Too much straining
Rectal prolapse is frequently seen in elderly women who have muscle weakness secondary to age and multiple pregnancies.
When a young man has rectal prolapse it is nearly almost always due to severe straining when moving her bowels. A stool softener or mild laxative can help. Surgery is an option if nothing else works. If the patient is already incontinent, surgery will not make it better.
