A proctoscopy is a safe examination that is well tolerated. The doctor examines the last part of the rectum. You lie sideways during the examination. The dermatologist-proctologist will examine the anus with a finger. The proctoscope will then be brought in. This can cause a feeling of pressure. In rare cases it may occur that the skin of the anus tears slightly. This can be somewhat painful, it leaves no lasting damage.
