Fecal Incontinence | Diagnosis & Tests


How will my doctor diagnose the cause of fecal incontinence?

Along with a physical exam, your doctor may want to do other tests such as an anorectal manometry, which tests anal pressure, rectal elasticity and rectal sensation. These tests can pinpoint the cause of your incontinence.
