The rectum is the last 12 to 15 centimeters of the large intestine, just above the anal canal. Normally the rectum is securely attached to the pelvis by muscles and ligaments that hold it in place, but various factors and conditions may weaken these attachments, and cause it to slip lower.

What is rectal prolapse? Rectal prolapse occurs when the tissue that lines the rectum falls down into or sticks out through the anal opening. There are different types and degrees of rectal proplapse. Rectal prolapse can start off with tissue protruding only during bowel movements; then it may protrude during sneezes or other abdominal contractions; then progress to protruding during activities like walking, and eventually it may reach chronic protrusion, where the rectum fails to retract at all.

What causes rectal prolapse? Constipation and straining to defecate play a major role in causing and aggravating rectal prolapse. Rectal prolapse can also result from conditions including cystic fibrosis, multiple sclerosis (MS), paralysis, and malnutrition and malabsorption (as a result of celiac disease as an example), or infection with pinworms or whipworms.

Rectal prolapse is also commonly caused by large hemorrhoids, injury to the anus or pelvic area, weakened, stretched or traumatized pelvic muscles and ligaments, aging, childbirth, and anal intercourse.

What are the symptoms of rectal prolapse? If your rectum has prolapsed, you may experience pain in the rectal area. You will likely see a pink or reddish-colored mass of tissue sticking out from the opening of the anus, especially after a bowel movement. The lining of the rectal tissue may be visible, and may bleed slightly. You may experience some fecal incontinence or unpredictable bowel habits, including diarrhea.

Rectal prolapse is often surgically corrected. However, the surgery can cause scar tissue and adhesions, which can narrow the rectal canal and cause difficulty having bowel movements. Repeated straining can then give rise to hemorrhoids or rectal and anal fissures, which often accompany rectal prolapse.
