The term “prolapse” refers to a body part slipping or falling from its normal position, and it describes what happens when the rectum, the final segment of the large intestine, prolapses into the pelvic region.

Three different prolapses are referred to as “rectal prolapse”:

the anus is completely penetrated by the rectum

The rectal lining is only partially forced through the anus

Internal prolapse is the descent of the rectum without extension of the anus.

Rectal prolapse can occur in infants, which could be a sign of cystic fibrosis, and in older children. It is more common in women than in men, and even more common in women over 50 (postmenopausal women).

Causes-Many conditions can lead to rectal prolapse, including:

either persistent diarrhea or persistent constipation

A history of persistent bowel movement straining.

·Older age.Age-related weakening of nearby structures in the pelvis area, including the rectum and anus muscles and ligaments, contributes to the overall weakness in that region of the body.

·Weakening of the anal sphincter.This particular muscle is in charge of regulating rectal feces release.

Previous pelvic or antegrade nasal injury.

·Damage to nerves.Rectal prolapse can occur as a result of nerve damage to the rectum and anus muscles, which can be brought on by pregnancy, difficult vaginal delivery, paralysis of the anal sphincter, spinal injury, back injury/back surgery, and/or other pelvic surgeries.

·Other diseases, conditions, and infections.Rectal prolapse can result from conditions like diabetes, cystic fibrosis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, hysterectomy, infections in the intestines brought on by parasites like pinworms and whipworms, as well as conditions brought on by malnutrition or problems with food digestion.

Rectal prolapse is a condition that causes the end of the rectum to protrude out of the anal canal over time due to regular amounts of standing and walking. At first, this can happen during or after bowel movements and is a temporary condition. However, over time – due to an ordinary amount of standing and walking – the end of the rectum may protrude out of the anal canal and need to be pushed back up into the anus by hand.

Fecal incontinence, which is the leakage of mucus, blood, or stool from the anus as a result of the rectum stretching the anal muscle, is another symptom of rectal prolapse. Symptoms change as the rectal prolapse itself progresses. Other symptoms of rectal prolapse include pain in the anus and rectum, rectal bleeding from the inner lining of the rectum, and rectal bleeding. These symptoms are rarely life threatening.
