Discomfort in passing stool
My son is 5yrs old...For the past one month he is experiencing discomfort in passing stool...Even though he gets the sensation to pass the stool, he controls it for almost 20 minutes...he says he is feeling pain if he passes the stool immediately. Please let me know what is his exact problem and what is the remedy for this?
