Do you have an embarrassing problem? Excrete makes you feel pain? Do you suffer from constipation and diarrhea, often with an admixture of blood or mucus? Do not underestimate these symptoms. Sign in to the proctologist today.
The proctologist deals with diseases of the final part of the gastrointestinal tract: rectum (part of the large intestine), anal canal and anus. Diagnoses and treats among others such diseases as: hemorrhoids, perianal abscess, anal fissure, ulcerative colitis, rectal polyps, colorectal cancer. Patients who report to the proctologist usually face the following health problems:
Waldemar Szabłoński is a doctor of medical science and a specialist in proctology with experience in the diagnosis and treatment of anorectal and rectal diseases, among others varicose veins and anal fissures, condylomas, polyps; performs endoscopy: anal and rectal speculum (anoscopy, rectoscopy) with clipping and histopathological diagnostics. Dr Szabłoński sees patients at the Medical Concierge.
What is the proctological examination?
- discussed by doctor Waldemar Szabłoński
allows you to assess the state of the anal canal and the end part of the rectum
allows to assess the state of the anus, anal canal and rectum and the initial diagnosis of many lesions
allows you to assess the state of the anal canal and the end of the rectum and take a sample for examination
Hemorrhoids are naturally occurring in the anal canal. The pathological condition (varicose veins) occurs when they are covered by inflammation. In the early stages of the disease, conservative therapy usually helps: a diet rich in fiber and physical activity, aided by pharmacological treatment. Haemorrhagic patients need to be treated using methods that are designed to disappear or reduce them. It is usually recommended to put elastic bands on varicose veins (Barron method), inject into the vicinity of varicose veins, shrinkage, photocoagulation and cryotherapy (freezing). In the case of large or congested and unrendered haemorrhoids, surgical excision is recommended.
The reason for the formation of perianal abscesses is blocking the estuary of the perianal glands. No outflow of mucus from the gland quickly leads to an increased growth of the bacterial flora, which in turn results in the formation of perianal abscess. The symptom of the disease, apart from general weakness, is pain of various intensity, often strong, sharp, sometimes pulsating, located in the anal area, intensifying during sitting, coughing and stool pressure. Rectal abscesses are treated surgically, assisted in some cases with antibacterial treatment, e.g. in the form of targeted antibiotic therapy. Complementary to the surgical treatment of abscess are caulks from antiseptic solutions performed 3-4 times a day and after each putting down the stool, which allows maintaining a healthy hygiene around the anus.
An anal fissure is a wound in the anal canal that develope as a result of high voltage of the end segment of the anal canal (due to physical effort, persistent constipation and / or increased anal sphincter tension). It runs longitudinally along the long axis of the anal canal and is located mostly from the top (from the back) less often from the bottom (from the vagina in women, from the scrotum in men). Treatment of the anal fissure can be conservative (fiber-rich diet, stool softeners, anti-inflammatory drugs and sphincter-reducing agents), while in justified cases, surgical treatment (eg relapses) is used, which is very effective.
Polyps are a bulge of the mucosa of the large intestine above its surface. They are benign tumors: most of them do not cause symptoms and are detected accidentally during endoscopic examination. One of the tools in the diagnostics of colon polyps is rectoscopy, which allows simultaneous removal of lesions up to 23 cm from the edge of the anus.
Diagnostics are extremely important in the treatment of diseases of the final gastrointestinal tract. Changing the rhythm of bowel movements, constipation, diarrhea, often with an admixture of blood or mucus, stress on the stool, anemia, abdominal pain - these are the symptoms that should alert us and prompt an immediate visit to the doctor.
