One of the great obstacles to my work as a proctologist is that many patients are either unwilling or unable to seek care for their buttocks and anus when it’s necessary. Many people take a wait-and-see attitude, preferring to subject themselves to days of pain over seeing a specialist.
This is not a terribly wise way to operate, of course. The stigma of grappling with health issues “down there” is far less significant than the potential dangers of ignoring them. Bustle recently published an article which makes this essential point in a few ways, including this commonsense point:
If you’re experiencing more constipation than normal, you should see your doctor, or it could lead to other issues. “In the case of constipation, it is important to understand the cause of your constipation/bowel changes,” says Caudle. “It’s also important to treat constipation because if it is left untreated, it can lead to problems with hemorrhoids.”
The Los Angeles Proctology center offers state of the art care for anal pain, hemorrhoids, and other health issues surrounding the buttocks and anus. There is no snickering or stigma associated with a visit here – just discreet, professional care for some of the most pressing health issues in our lives. Call today to learn more.
