Can hemorrhoids be cured with medicine?

Published at : 09-07-2019 View : 12639

  Hemorrhoids will typically be diagnosed from an easy medical history and physical examination. External hemorrhoids are usually apparent, particularly if a blood clot has defined. Our doctor could perform a digital rectal examination to check for blood in the stool.

Types of Hemorrhoids

  Internal hemorrhoids: are found in your rectum. They can’t always be seen because they’re too deep in your anus to be visible. Internal hemorrhoids aren’t normally serious and tend to go away on their own. Sometimes internal hemorrhoids will swell and stick out of your anus. This is known as a prolapsed hemorrhoid. There aren’t any nerves that detect pain in your rectum, so you may not always notice internal hemorrhoids.

  External hemorrhoids: occur on your anus, directly on the surface of where your bowel movements come out. They’re not continuously visible but sometimes seen as lumps on the anal surface. External hemorrhoids aren’t usually a serious medical issue. But see our doctor if they cause pain or discomfort that interrupts your daily life.

  Thrombosed hemorrhoids: contain a blood clot (thrombosis) within the hemorrhoid tissue. They may appear as lumps or swelling around your anus. Thrombosed hemorrhoids are essentially a complication of hemorrhoid, in which a blood clot forms.



Causes of Hemorrhoids

  Hemorrhoids are caused by swelling in the anal or rectal veins, this makes them susceptible to irritation. Enlargement of the veins around the anus causes hemorrhoids.

  The causes of hemorrhoids include:

  Pregnancy: Pregnant women can get hemorrhoids during the last 6 months of pregnancy. This is because of increased pressure on the blood vessels in the pelvic area. Straining to push the baby out during labor can make hemorrhoids worse.

  Aging: Hemorrhoids are most common among adults aged 45 to 65 years. This doesn’t mean, however, that young people and children do not get them.

  Diarrhea: Hemorrhoids can occur after cases of chronic diarrhea.

  Chronic constipation: Straining to move stool puts also pressure on the walls of the blood vessels.

  Sitting for too long: Staying in a seated position for long periods can cause hemorrhoids, especially on the toilet.

  Heavy lifting: Repeatedly lifting heavy objects can lead to hemorrhoids.

  Obesity: Diet-related obesity can cause hemorrhoids.


  Some hemorrhoids don’t require treatment and can clear up on their own within a couple of days. During this time, a person should rest and avoid doing anything that strains or puts pressure on the area. Over-the-counter (OTC) treatments may work for some people. If your hemorrhoids produce only mild discomfort, our doctor might suggest medical treatments or therapy can help relieve itching and discomfort. If OTC treatments have little or no effect, and our doctor may be able to prescribe more effective medicine and surgery for you to get rid of it.
