I have an appointment with my doctor in a couple of weeks about my hemrroids problems that keeps popping up. What should I expect with my rectal exam? I'm pretty nervous. One reason ive never had one before and dont know what to expect? Two I'm a male with a young female doctor, I know she is a doctor and it has never bothered me before (she has given me a penis culture, herna check on my testicals, and been naked in front of her) but an anal exam has me scared to death. What can I expect in an anal exam?
