Diagnosis and Management of Anorectal Disorders in the Primary Care Setting.
Prim Care 2017; 44(4):709-720PC

Abstract

Anorectal disorders are very common among a wide population of patients. Because patients may be embarrassed about the anatomic location of their symptoms, they may present to care late in the course of their illness. Care should be taken to validate patient concerns and normalize fears. This article discusses the diagnoses and management of common anorectal disorders among patients presenting to a primary care physician.
