Anal Rectal Pain

Patients of all ages frequently have concerns about pain symptoms occurring in their anorectal area. Patients with anal rectal pain, especially those with rectal bleeding lasting more than one or two days, should schedule an appointment with a colon and rectal specialist.

Although many painful anal and rectal conditions are non-cancerous and are easily diagnosed and treated, patients sometimes delay seeking the medical care of a colon and rectal specialist or proctologist because of personal embarrassment or fear of cancer.

The specialized and dedicated physicians at the Center for Colon & Rectal Health understand your embarrassment. Our Philosophy of Care includes providing our patients with compassionate and focused diagnostic examination efforts with state-of-the-art medical care. We take the time to answer all of your questions with a goal to provide patients with comforting assurance until we are certain you understand the possible source of your pain and how it can best be treated.

Anal fissures, anal abscess, anal fistula, pruritis ani, and functional pain (muscle spasm) could each be the underlying cause of anal rectal pain and are very common issues that affect people all over the world every day. In more complicated cases, what is originally thought to be a simple hemorrhoid is actually a much more complex problem. CCRH provides a complete assessment of all anal rectal pain symptoms and, often, treatment can begin immediately in the office.
