Rectal Prolapse Surgery in Mumbai

Prolapse is when something slips out or falls out of its normal position in our body. Rectal prolapse is when the rectum or the last portion of the large intestine drops out of the anus. Although this sounds like a grave medical condition, it is not life-threatening. However, ignoring the condition of rectal prolapse is not wise. Rectal prolapse may affect your life and may be a cause of embarrassment in many cases. There can be three types of rectal prolapse. The three kinds of rectal prolapse are as follows:

  • Mucosal prolapse: This is a kind of rectal prolapse in which the rectal lining slips out of the anus.
  • External prolapse: This is a kind of rectal prolapse in which the entirety of the rectum sticks out of the anus.
  • Internal prolapse: This is the kind of rectal prolapse in which the rectum starts to slip off from its original position but does not stick out of the anus yet.

Symptoms of rectal prolapse: Rectal prolapse can have the following symptoms:

  • Feeling like something has slipped out of the body during bowel movements.
  • Visibility of red mass outside the anus.
  • Pain in the anal region.
  • Leakage of blood, mucus and stool from the anal region.
