    Proctitis is a medical condition characterized by inflammation of the lining of the rectum, which is the last part of the digestive tract where stool passes. The inflammation can cause symptoms such as discomfort, pain, rectal bleeding, diarrhea, and a frequent or continuous urge to have a bowel movement. It can be caused by sexually transmitted diseases, infections, radiation therapy, or certain bowel conditions like Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis. Treatment for proctitis generally focuses on alleviating the symptoms and addressing the underlying cause of the inflammation.
