diseases - still a topic with taboo
day and age in the western world, anal diseases are taboo topics about which
nobody wants to talk. If one considers that in the industrialized world, almost
every other person in the course of his or her life is confronted with them, one
can imagine the prevalence. Anal diseases are not only extremely annoying and
very painful, but also takes place in part of the body which has already been
instilled in most humans -in the childhood- as dirty.
is not amazing that many people have a high threshold of pain and often have
very insufficient knowledge. So, still all illnesses within the anal region will
be summarized by most people under the term hemorrhoids (piles).
There are so
many various illnesses in the anal region, a specialized field was formed in the
medical field called the Proctology. The physician who concerns himself with
these illnesses is called a Proctologist. Often he or she can recognize the
illness only on the basis of the patient’s history and can confirm it with
simple diagnostic methods.
should not be afraid of visiting the physician if there are complaints or
unusual occurrences, like e.g.. blood in the stool. The general rule in medicine
applies also to the anal diseases: Earlier an illness is recognized and
diagnosed, easier, simpler and more successfully can it be treated.
