Hemorrhoids Q&A

How can you tell if you have hemorrhoids?

Hemorrhoids are swollen veins in or around your anus. The signs of hemorrhoids can vary with their location and type.

Internal hemorrhoids
Internal hemorrhoids occur deep inside the rectum and aren’t easily felt or seen. They’re usually painless; however, internal hemorrhoids often cause bleeding during bowel movements.

External hemorrhoids
External hemorrhoids occur in the skin around the anus. They’re often very sore or tender and may itch severely.
External hemorrhoids may also crack open, leading to blood on your toilet paper when you wipe. They usually feel like bumps around your anus.

Prolapsed hemorrhoids
Prolapsed hemorrhoids develop as internal hemorrhoids but stretch so much that they protrude from the anus. This type of hemorrhoid is very serious because it can potentially block your anus, prevent you from eliminating waste, and lead to severe blood loss.

Any type of hemorrhoid can develop a blood clot (thrombosis), and it may potentially burst open, which is a medical emergency. It’s always best to treat hemorrhoids early before you run the risk of an emergency.

How can I treat hemorrhoids at home?

Hemorrhoids may go away on their own without treatment. You can do a few things to encourage hemorrhoids to go away, including:

• Apply topical lidocaine, hydrocortisone, or witch hazel
• Use laxatives to soften stool
• Take non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) for pain
• Drink more water
• Get at least 20-35 grams of fiber daily through food and supplements
• Sit in a warm bath (sitz bath) for 10-20 minutes daily
• Gently pat clean after bowel movements using wet wipes or lotion-infused tissue

If these measures aren’t successful after a week or your hemorrhoids worsen, Newtown Gastroenterology can help.

How are hemorrhoids treated medically and surgically?

Newtown Gastroenterology offers comprehensive medical and surgical hemorrhoid care, including:

Rubber band ligation
Rubber band ligation uses a rubber band to cut off hemorrhoid blood supply so the vein shrivels.

Infrared coagulation
Infrared coagulation uses heat application to shrink the hemorrhoid.

Hemorrhoidectomy surgery removes large external or prolapsed internal hemorrhoids. Hemorrhoid stapling Hemorrhoid stapling removes an internal hemorrhoid or pulls a prolapsed internal hemorrhoid back to its original position within the anus and secures it in place.

The Newtown Gastroenterology team provides a customized hemorrhoid treatment plan so you don’t have to suffer or risk your health for another day. Call the nearest office or book your appointment online now.
