Rectal prolapse

Pathology of rectal prolapse

Rectal prolapse is a condition in which the lower part of the rectum protrudes through the anus, protruding outward. This problem occurs when the tissues and muscles that support the rectum become weak or loose. Rectal prolapse can cause discomfort and difficulties with bowel movements.


  • Sensation of a bulge or foreign body protruding from the anus.
  • Pain or discomfort in the anal or rectal area.
  • Difficulty with bowel movements.
  • Rectal bleeding after bowel movements.
  • Fecal incontinence or involuntary loss of stool.


To understand the most appropriate treatment for rectal prolapse, it is advisable to schedule an appointment with Professor Christian Gozzi for a specialized consultation.
