It probably gives them some peaceful time to read, watch or play games.

A man from south-east China had to rush to the hospital at midnight after noticing a mysterious ball-sized lump fallen out of his anus. The doctors said the swelling was attached to his dorsal side when he got to the hospital and they immediately realized it was his rectum. It had lost its attachment to his body.

The man, whose rectum fell out, could have had suffered the injury after spending 30 minutes on the toilet playing video games, doctors think.

A man in China had been sitting on the toilet for half an hour when his rectum fell out of his body.

Surgeons at The Sixth Affiliated Hospital of Sun Yat-sen University surgically removed the body part from his body and he is said to be recovering. The incident took place in Zhongshan, Guangdong Province, on February 4. Rectal prolapse is most common in women over age 50, but it can occur in younger adults and children as well, according to the Cleveland Clinic. How did this happen and what exactly is rectal prolapse? She adds, "The patient has had rectal prolapse since he was four years old, but the bulge was able to retract in the past".

Dr Su Dan told local media the man was diagnosed with rectal prolapse, which occurs when the last part of the intestines loses its attachment within the body and becomes visible outside the body. As the condition gets worse, the rectum may protrude through the anus. A CT scan shows a ball-shaped bulge outside the patient's anus.

The condition affects about 2 out of every 100,000 people, and up to two-thirds of patients with the condition have chronic constipation, ASCRS says. The lump had a diameter of 16 centimetres (6.3 inches).

Dr. Su states that perhaps in the man's process of trying to eliminate waste, his pelvic muscles might have weakened and that the long duration of sitting on the toilet might have triggered the prolapse.
