There are two kinds of rectal prolapse: mucous rectal prolapse and total rectal prolapse.
Mucous rectal prolapse occurs when only the rectal mucosa protrudes out of the anus by a few centimetres with defecation, then it goes back to its normal position.
Total rectal prolapse occurs when the whole lining of the rectum protrudes out of the anus.
