The anus is the opening at the far end of the digestive tract through which stool leaves the body. The anus is formed partly from the surface layers of the body, including the skin, and partly from the intestine. The anus is lined with a continuation of the external skin. A muscular ring (anal sphincter) keeps the anus closed until the person has a bowel movement.

     Full of nerve endings, the anus finds itself the object of multiple functions as it's also known as a sexual 'organ' which makes it a target for sexually transmitted infections.
     Diseases of the anus include anal cancer, abscess, warts, fistula, anal fissure, itching and hemorrhoids.  Most of these require medical intervention.  For so many people this is a neglected area of the body and one not discussed in polite conversation. 
Do not let inhibitions prevent necessary medical attention!
     To prevent diseases of the anus and to promote general hygiene, a good practice is clean the exterior of the anus after emptying the bowels, before an enema or colonic and especially before any type of physical play.

     Birth defects of the anus include stenosis and imperforation. These benefit from surgical intervention.
     Damaged anal sphincter (patulous anus in more severe cases) — caused by careless or sometimes necessarily sacrificial surgery in the perineal region or by rough/abrupt penetration in anal sex — can lead to flatus and/or fecal incontinence, chronic constipation and, ultimately, megacolon (abnormal dilation of the colon).


This would be the time to mention that most diseases that effect the anus could
be prevented or minimized with a proper diet.  Fiber..fiber..fiber!! 
With the very serious and often terminal diseases lurking out there, not having a good body
regimen is exactly like holding a gun to your head and playing russian roulette.  If you can
play an aggressive supporting role in your own care and future, why wouldn't you?
