Rectal prolapse befalls when the rectum droops and comes via the anal opening.


The precise reason of rectal prolapse is indistinguishable. Possible reasons might consist of any of the following:

  • An enlarged opening owing to relaxed muscles in the pelvic floor, which is molded of muscles around the rectum
  • Wobbly muscles of the anal sphincter
  • A strangely long colon
  • Descending movement of the stomach cavity between the rectum and uterus
  • Prolapse of the small intestine
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhea
  • Chronic coughing and sneezing

A prolapse can be partial or complete:

  • With a partial prolapse, the internal lining of the rectum humps partially from the anus.
  • With a complete prolapse, the whole rectum humps via the anus.

Rectal prolapse befalls most often in kids under age 6. Health difficulties that might result in prolapse consist of:

  •  Cystic fibrosis
  • Intestinal worm infections
  • Long-standing diarrhea
  • Other health glitches present at birth

In grown-ups, it is generally found with constipation or with a muscle or nerve issue in the pelvic or genital region. In cases of small prolapse, it is at times challenging to differentiate between mucosal and full-thickness rectal prolapse. Mucosal prolapse normally displays radial folds rather than concentric rings. If these cannot be clinically distinguished, a defecogram might be of assistance in segregating these two conditions. These days, a lot of people opt for rectal prolapse treatment by Ayurvedic medicines to resolve this issue.
