Solitary rectal ulcer syndrome is a condition that occurs when one or more open sores (ulcers) develop in the rectum. The rectum is a muscular tube that's connected to the end of your colon. Stool passes through the rectum on its way out of the body.
Signs and symptoms of solitary rectal ulcer syndrome include:
• Rectal bleeding
• Straining during bowel movements
• Pain or a feeling of fullness in your pelvis
• A feeling of incomplete passing of stool
• Passing mucus from your rectum
• Fecal incontinence
• Rectal pain
Tests and procedures used to diagnose rectal ulcers include:
• Sigmoidoscopy. During this test, doctor inserts a flexible tube equipped with a lens into your rectum to examine your rectum and part of your colon. If a lesion is found, doctor may take a tissue sample (biopsy) for laboratory testing.
• Ultrasound. This imaging technique uses sound waves to create pictures. Doctor may recommend an ultrasound to help differentiate solitary rectal ulcer syndrome from other conditions.
• Imaging studies. Doctor may recommend an imaging procedure, such as defecation proctography. This test allows the doctor to look at your rectum.
• Lifestyle changes.
• Behavior therapy to stop straining during bowel movements
