Rectal diseases

It does not always have to be hemorrhoids

Hämorrhoiden

When we hear the word rectal disease, we often immediately think of hemorrhoids or even tumors.

Although hemorrhoids are very common, 60-70% of the population has hemorrhoidal disease, they are not always the reason for complaints in the rectum. Especially acute complaints often have other causes. That is why it is so important to know the cause, because each disease has its own individual healing process.

Information about rectal diseases

Fissures are mucosal tears in the very sensitive anal canal. That is why they are often accompanied by severe pain. Conservative treatment is recommended here. So healing is done with ointments and stretching. The patient can perform the exercises independently and they are part of the therapy. If the problem persists chronically, the fissure can be healed by injecting “Botox” or by surgery. Since fissures often have a cause, this must be found and treated in order to obtain a lasting healing effect.

Fistulas in the rectum are tiny passages that run along the side of the anus. Unfortunately, the sphincter muscle is often affected as well. The fistulas can become infected and then lead to abscesses, which are extremely painful and an emergency. Since this is an emergency and requires a prompt appointment.

Perianal thromboses are thromboses located directly at the anus. Thromboses can cause very painful swelling. However, they are often confused with hemorrhoids. However, this rectal condition can also be treated without surgery.

Marisques are skin folds, often residual conditions of perianal thrombosis. They can be removed if desired.

Genital warts can also be sexually transmitted anal area. In addition to this common disease, there are of course herpes , HIV, hepatitis, syphillis or lues, gonorrhea or gonorrhea and chlamydia.

Incontinence for urine or stool, as well as constipation, are complex problems that require the cooperation of different specialists. We have had very good experience with pelvic floor exercises in this area.

Colorectal cancer is very common and must always be ruled out if symptoms such as palpable lumps, bleeding or change in bowel behavior are present.
