Has your doctor ever performed a digital prostate examination?

Customer reply replied 8 years ago
No, thats prbably the 1 test i havent had.Would that cause the shooting pain in my rectum?
Doctor: Doctor Marcus, Board Certified MD replied 8 years ago
It is certainly possible, especially since you seem to have had a thorough GI workup to exclude problems in that part of your body. Many times inflammation or irritation in the prostate can be felt as discomfort in the rectum or lower abdomen.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
