7A rare occurrence
Prolapsed rectum affects just 2.5 out of 100, 000 people yearly and is mostly seen in adults both men and women. However, women beyond the age of 50 are at increased risk of such a condition six time s more than men. Such patients facing the condition have also related conditions of autism, psychiatric problems and development delay that require them to take a lot of medication.

The only way to remedy the condition is surgery. There are two types of surgery in the prolapsed rectum. One is from the abdomen and the other is through the anus. Surgeons feel that given the health of the patient and taking in account several factors such as age and extent of the condition, abdominal surgery is the most preferred way to ensure permanent repair of the problem.

When untreated, rectal prolapse does not turn into cancer, it can get larger over a period of time and also lead to permanent problems such as fecal incontinence. Here are the various problems associated with prolapsed rectum.
