  • lesions
  • Excision of rectal lesions by thoe Kraske approach. (springer.com)
  • Mucous discharges can be thought of in three broad categories: Normal physiologically produced mucus Inappropriately expressed physiologically produced mucus (e.g. in the presence of sphincter defects, or lesions preventing normal sphincter closure, allowing seepage or soiling) Mucus produced in pathological quantities (e.g. from a lesion, or generalized coloproctitis or as a result of bacterial overgrowth) A mucous rectal discharge may be blood-streaked. (wikipedia.org)
  • stool
  • Additional key elements include a careful and thorough inspection of the anus, palpation for rectal masses, characterization of the stool color, and a stool guaiac card test to evaluate for the presence of blood. (wikipedia.org)
  • Later signs include rectal bleeding, often with "red currant jelly" stool (stool mixed with blood and mucus), and lethargy. (wikipedia.org)
  • treatment
  • In this chapter, we will review the diagnosis and treatment of both the common and the more unusual neoplasms. (springer.com)
  • There are no currently accepted techniques that allow for objective and accurate assessment of a rectal tumor's response to pre-operative treatment short of post-operative pathologic evaluation. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • infection
  • Rectal discharge has many causes, and may present with other symptoms: Staining of undergarments Constant feeling of dampness around anus Frequent urge to open bowels, but passage of only small amounts of mucus or pus-like liquid rather than normal feces Rectal pain Rectal malodor, when the discharge is foul-smelling, e.g. associated with certain infections Pruritus ani Rectal bleeding Perianal erythema, swelling and tenderness Pus usually indicates infection. (wikipedia.org)
  • The differential diagnosis of rectal discharge is extensive, but the general etiological themes are infection and inflammation. (wikipedia.org)
  • digital
  • Participants undergo a digital rectal examination and high-resolution anoscopy. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Common screening methods are occult blood test, colonoscopy, sigmoidoscopy (usually flexible sigmoidoscopy, using a flexible endoscope, but more rarely the older rigid sigmoidoscopy, using a rigid endoscope), lower gastrointestinal series (barium enema), digital rectal examination (DRE), and virtual colonoscopy. (wikipedia.org)
  • A digital rectal examination is particularly helpful in children, as part of the intussusceptum may be felt by the finger. (wikipedia.org)
  • type
  • Types of fecal incontinence that produce a liquid leakage could be thought of as a type of rectal discharge. (wikipedia.org)
  • abdominal pain
  • It can be very difficult for a coder to see a surveillance or screening exam documented by a physician but make the determination that the exam does not meet the definition of screening based on documentation of active symptoms such as rectal bleeding, abdominal pain, anemia, or diarrhea. (ahima.org)
  • discharge
  • Otherwise, this is closely related to types of fecal incontinence (e.g. fecal leakage) but the term rectal discharge does not necessarily imply degrees of incontinence. (wikipedia.org)
  • Types of fecal incontinence that produce a liquid leakage could be thought of as a type of rectal discharge. (wikipedia.org)

  • Although not exactly the same as rectal discharge, perianal discharge can be misinterpreted as such, given the anatomical proximity. (wikipedia.org)
