Hemorrhoids, when should you see a doctor?

Patient Consults With Doctor

 Hemorrhoids, also known as piles, are swollen and often itchy veins in the anal canal and rectum. Symptoms include painful swelling, bleeding during bowel movements, or pain with bowel movements. Hemorrhoid treatment depends on the severity of your symptoms. Home remedies may help you find comfort until your symptoms disappear entirely. 

Hemorrhoids can be a painful and embarrassing condition. They affect many people, especially those over the age of fifty. They are caused by swelling or inflammation in veins that line the wall of your anus and lower rectum. Hemorrhoid symptoms include:

-itching

-bleeding from your anus

-painful bowel movements

-feeling like you need to pass stool again after passing it

-inability to control gas or tightness around the opening of the anus (this may require surgery) 

When should you see a doctor?

If you experience any of these symptoms, it is essential to see a doctor immediately. If left untreated, could lead to more severe issues such as rectal bleeding, constipation, and loss of bowel control. Symptoms fall into three categories: internal hemorrhoids, external hemorrhoids, and prolapsed or strangulated hemorrhoids. If you are experiencing any, it’s best to see a doctor before the situation worsens.

A comprehensive history is usually sufficient for diagnoses, but laboratory tests may also be necessary in some cases. Lack of improvement despite best treatment may indicate another health problem.

You don’t need to visit your doctor for every flare-up. Still, you should be aware of the symptoms so that you can treat them earlier on before they get worse. Waiting until hemorrhoids cause severe discomfort may lead to complications like chronic (long-lasting) hemorrhoid disease.

 

What are treatments for Hemorrhoids?

Several treatment options depend on the severity of your case. Symptoms can come from several factors, including childbirth, aging, chronic constipation or diarrhea, or being overweight. Treatments include:

– Creams

– Suppositories

Surgery

Banding procedures

Laser therapy

Hemorrhoid treatments depend on the severity of your symptoms. Home remedies may help you find comfort until symptoms disappear entirely. It’s important to note that surgery is typically a last resort for treating more severe symptoms and should be considered only after other treatments have failed. Hemorrhoids are a common medical condition that can cause pain, itching, and bleeding. Symptoms vary from person to person and range from mild to severe. Most people with hemorrhoids don’t require medical attention, but you should see a doctor if your hemorrhoids:

– Bleed frequently

– Are very painful

– Cause prolapse (a bulge of tissue protruding from the anus)

– Are accompanied by nausea, vomiting, or fever. 

If your symptoms are more severe, your doctor may recommend one or more of the following treatments:

– Over-the-counter medications, such as pain relievers, topical medications, or stool softeners
