Which kind of doctor specializes in diseases of the colon, rectum, and anus of MALES?


Who else, besides proctologists, specializes in these areas of the body (males)?
----------

The same type doctor that specializes in those belonging to females. They are called gastroenterologists or internal medicine specialists. Your colon, rectum and anus are not different from a female, usually only bigger.  (+ info)

my fried,she has no medical insurance and she cant go to the hospital?what can she do to help herself at home?what could have caused these not so often bleeding while she is at the toilet?
----------

It may be hemorrhoids or maybe something more serious. Bleeding can be very hazardous to her health. She HAS to go and see a doctor at once.

I don't think home treatment is an option.  (+ info)

IS it really healthier for your anus to squat rather than sit on a high toilet?


I heard about this little medical factoid that many diseases that occur later on in life, such as incontinence do not occur in populations that do not use a toilet.
----------

But it isn't only because that, but because the only cultures left without such conveniences have to be more traditional hunter/ gatherer cultures without a lot of many of the other modern things that make us sick.
As for your question it is more natural to squat, and you'll notice your knees are up against your stomach which helps massage your innards as you go, so yes, the squat toilet is better.  (+ info)

What kind of disease or condition is it when your anus pop out while u using the toilet doing # 2.?


Is there anything to do to stop anus poping out eveytime someone use the bathroom. I mean is this a disease? wha is the cause of this and what is the cure?
----------

Sounds like Rectal Prolapse. Rectal prolapse in adults is caused by a weakening of the sphincter muscle or ligaments that hold the rectum in place. Normally, the rectum is securely attached to the pelvis with the help of ligaments and muscles. This attachment firmly holds the rectum in place. Various factors, such as age, long-term constipation, and the stress of childbirth, may cause these ligaments and muscles to weaken, which means that the rectum’s attachment to the body also weakens. This causes the rectum to prolapse, meaning it slips or falls out of place.

In the early stages of rectal prolapse, the rectum becomes poorly attached but stays within the body most of the time. This stage of rectal prolapse is called mucosal prolapse, or partial prolapse, meaning that only the inner lining of the rectum (rectal mucosa) protrudes from the anus.

Almost all cases of rectal prolapse require medical care. Occasionally, successful treatment of the underlying cause of a prolapsed rectum resolves the problem. However, these scenarios usually involve infants or children. In most people, surgery is necessary to treat a prolapsed rectum.

Alternative therapies can act as support for conventional threatment, especially if surgery is required. Acupuncture, homeopathy, and botanical medicine can all be used to assist in resolution of the prolapse  (+ info)

if male have a some kind of pimple on his anus..is it some kind of diseases or something...?


There is no way to know this without a physician looking at it. Some sexually transmitted diseases such as Syphilis initally cause lesions (called Chancre) on the penis, anus or on the vagina. The chancre is usually painless and heals on it's on- but the disease remains in the person's bloodstream and moves on to the second stage of infection. My advise is to see a physician, as he or she can perform tests to determine if this is just a pimple, boil or some type of disease process.  (+ info)

Itchy anus and tapeworms biology question?


one of the biology questions i have for a project on diseases says a symptom of a certain disease or worm is an itchy rectum. who would get a itching anus and what disease would they have. And what are the symptoms of tapeworms?
----------

Tajie, Almost all persons with a worm that causes an "itchy anus" have the worm infection known by several names such as pinworm, threadworm, or Enterobius vermicularis. Tapeworm does not cause itching. The pinworm is highly infectious, but rarely causes more than anal itching. It is a white roundworm, about one-half to one inch long.
Pinworms are tiny parasitic worms that live in the large intestine. The female worms lay their eggs around the anus at night. Symptoms include anal itching, sleeplessness, irritability, and anal irritation due to scratching. Pinworms may also be present without symptoms. Pinworms are common in school-aged children.

Pinworms are spread when an uninfected person touches the anal area of an infected person or sheets or other articles contaminated with pinworm eggs, then touches the mouth, transferring the eggs, and swallows the eggs. An infected person can spread pinworms by scratching the anal area, then contaminating food or other objects which are then eaten or touched by uninfected persons. Pinworms can be spread as long as either worms or eggs are present. Eggs can survive up to 2 weeks away from a human host.

The entire family may have to be treated to prevent reinfection. Observe proper handwashing among children and adults, particularly before eating and after using the toilet. Clean and disinfect bathroom surfaces. Vacuum carpeted areas. Machine wash bed linens and hand towels using hot water. Machine dry using a heat setting (not air fluff). The family should do the same at home. Require that the nails of all children in your care be kept short and discourage nail biting. Discourage children from scratching the anal area. Parents should be asked to make sure that the child is bathed after treatment. This will help remove any eggs that were laid around the anus before treatment.

As for tapeworms, you might notice segments of the adult tapeworm (proglottids) in your stool. Other possible signs and symptoms include:
■Nausea
■Weakness
■Loss of appetite
■Abdominal pain
■Diarrhea
■Weight loss and inadequate absorption of nutrients from food  (+ info)

Diseases besides AIDS/HIV can you get from someone Else's blood?


Also, could you get a disease from someone Else's blood in your anus, just a small amount not a lot. Please answer in a serious and professional manner, thanks
----------

There are numerous diseases that transmit via blood.

Hepatitis B and C are such diseases. They are also the main (other than HIV) viruses that the authorities are concerned with.

Syphilis can also be transmitted by blood, so can Malaria and Dengue fever.

A lesser known virus called HTLV (Human T-cell lymphotropic virus) is also transmitted by blood.

There are countless other examples which can't all be listed in just a short forum. I would recommend speaking to your physician if you suspect something untoward happened to you.  (+ info)

I have a wart just next to my anus hole?


I went to a sexually transmitted disease clinic about 3 years ago when it first appeared, they did all the tests for all the diseases and as i thought I was clean as a whistle. I knew I would be as i don't sleep around but thought maybe my partner had been, but she hadn't. Anyway, they said it would go away on its on but it hasn't. I really want it gone as its just annoying and uncomfortable. any ideas how to get rid of it? Sorry its not the happiest of topics but would love a solution.
----------

Please just ask your doctor again if he is sure it is nothing wrong because early detection is crucial with diseases in case it maybe fatal. If its a wart just ask your doctor 2 "burn" it off 4 u. And plus since its next to your anus there is high risk it will get infected especially if u try remove it yourself.  (+ info)
