Home > Health Library > Pushing a Rectal Prolapse Into Place
If you or your child has a rectal prolapse, you may be able to push the prolapse back into place as soon as it occurs. Your doctor will let you know if this is okay to do.
If the rectal tissue cannot be inserted easily into the anus, see your doctor.
