What is Proctology?

Proctology is the branch of medicine concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of diseases related to the anus and the rectum. These diseases are collectively known as anorectal diseases. In the words of a senior proctologist at Pristyn Care, "In the last few years, we have seen a tremendous rise in patients with anorectal complications. The profile of patients encompass a vast age group. From what we have noticed, unhealthy dietary habits and sedentary lifestyles play the most common and major contributing factors in case of such diseases."
