Patients often think of the worst and are alarmed when complaints in the anal region occur. However, the disregard of symptoms is not a good option because the basic problem cannot be solved. Most proctologic diseases can be simply and almost painless solved. The necessary examinations are mainly less painful and uncomfortable than first thought of. Most patients say they would have come much earlier if they had known how simple the examinations would be. Dread and shame are mostly the furthermost problem. The anal area is the last privacy of persons; this we know and respect it.
