What treatment options are available for this kind of medical condition ? All these 
and more tonight on medtalk.

Joining us tonight, Dr. Armando Crisostomo a colorectal surgeon at the QualiMed 
Health Network. He is also a former president of Philippine College of Surgeons. Also 
joining us tonight, Dr. Manuel Francisco Roxas Consultant Director of The Medical 
City Colorectal Clinic and the chairman of the Department of Surgery of the Medical 

Host : So as colorectal surgeons, you tackled the medical concerns of the rectum and 
the anus. So tonight is about anal diseases. What are Anal disease?

Dr. Manuel: Well, there are many diseases can actually affect the anus so we call 
them anal diseases because they affect lost and there several very common once for 
instance hemorrhoids, fissures and the abscesses and fistulas as well as anal warts. 
But other than that there are other condition that should be brought by the attention 
of the Doctor also so there are many conditions. So we love them all because we 
discussing in a topic like this, in a forum like this.

Host: So before we go to the diseases of the anus and the rectum, let first 
understand the function of the rectum and the anus.

Dr. Arman: Well the rectum or the anus considered the terminal portion of the gastro 
intestinal track. It is part of the expiratory system. So any excess food or waste 
materials that our body ingest and no longer needs are expelled to the very important 
part of the anatomy called the anus or rectum. And here usually, as we become adults 
the stools which form part of the waste materials become somewhat solid in character. 
And in children or babies we have not developed that ability to voluntarily expel the 
contents of the rectum but as we get older we developed that capability to be able to 
detect whether weíre going to passed out gas, or whether going to passed out 
something very soft, or we have some diarrhea or whether what is going to come out in 
solid. So an appropriate time our anus or rectum is very sensitive organ in itself. 
Because itís able to distinguish whether youíre going to pass gas, liquid or solid 
tools at appropriate time. So it gives you this signals which are processed by your 
brain so at an appropriate time youíll go to the comfort room to expel yourself. Just 
imagine if you put a mixture of air, water and the solid in your hand. Can your hand 
be able to expel air only, liquid only your hand cannot do that but they say anus and 
rectum can do that. So that how important that portion of the anatomy.

Host : So people realize how important it is

Dr Manuel: They will realize it when they get older, when they aged. One of the most 
important structures of the anus is the muscle. It allows you to either you hold it 
when you donít want it to go or to release it. And if thereís weakening in the 
muscles people will notice that they canít hold it as well anymore so it called 
incontinence. The function of the rectum is to store these things. If you donít want 
to release it, it allows you to store it. And then its releases it in one nice go. 
Without that function people will just go constantly and it doesnít have that 
satisfying expulsion that the muscle of rectum provides. So very complex and 
fascinating organ also at least.

Host: And because itís very complex, very fascinating would like learn more about it. 
And these diseases or the pain and irritation come because of certain medical 
conditions that are brought about by maybe controlling it or maybe releasing it too 
much. Letís go now to the diseases that cause anal pain and probably irritation and 
discomfort. What among the common diseases that should we tackle first?

Dr Arman: Maybe the most common we have worldwide the hemorrhoids.

Host: Letís start with hemorrhoids, what exactly are hemorrhoids. How do they form 
and which part of the anus is affected?

Dr. Arman: Well, every one of us even as newborn we weíre born with certain tissues 
in our anal rectal area which try to cushion the expulsion of the fatal material. Now 
because of the certain pee disposing condition like poor bowel habits in which you 
have to little fiber in your diet or you tend to be constipated or you strain too 
much as you move your bowels, these cushion slide down it become somewhat in flame. 
And inside this cushion are certain blood vessels also. So that when this blood 
vessel slides down some of them get traumatized and they result in some symptoms like 
bleeding. Now in general we have 3 types of hemorrhoids; we have the external 
hemorrhoids which is found outside and this is only sensitive and therefore the main 
symptom of these hemorrhoids is pain. The second type of hemorrhoids are more of the 
internal hemorrhoid and these are the blood vessel are located so when you have 
internal hemorrhoid, these are the one that presents bleeding. If you have both its 
called the mixed hemorrhoids, so these patient will have mixed hemorrhoid it will 
feel something bulging out when they have particularly difficult bowel movement and 
then sometimes they also have bleeding as well. So depending whether you have 
hemorrhoid that is located externally, internally or mixed one that will determine 
the kind symptom that you will present.

Host: You mention that it is common.
