A Pain In The Rectal Area

We always hear the expression pain in the as. The truth is, there are health conditions that is literally painful down there. Patients describe this condition as a sudden, sharp, gripping pain in the rectal area. It usually subsides and recurs every now and then. It may occur any time of the day and affects more women than men.

Doctors may be aware of the existence of this condition, but until now, they still don't know its cause. In general, the rectal area may have conditions that can be considered serious such as infections and malignancies. For those of you who may have been feeling something down there, it is advised to have a complete examination with your physician. You may likely to have colonoscopy or sigmoidoscopy.
