In brief: Depends but yes
Initially after the diagnosis of proctitis is made, a specialist must determine the extent of the inflammation and the underlying cause, be it idiopathic or related to inflammatory bowel disease or some other cause.
This step is necessary in order to determine the appropriate treatment in the short term as well as the long term.
