When you visit your doctor, you will probably be asked to describe your symptoms. The doctor will do an examination to see if your anus is inflamed and if there are enlarged hemorrhoids present. The doctor will want to know if you have found blood in your stool, which may lead to intestinal endoscopy. The doctor will probably feel for something unusual with a digital rectal exam. Remember that even though it may be a little embarrassing and uncomfortable, hemorrhoid exams are usually painless.
External hemorrhoids form a lump on the anus. If a blood clot forms called thrombosed external hemorrhoids, the size becomes larger and more painful and swollen than an unblistered hemorrhoid. Internal hemorrhoids often do not cause visible lumps or pains, but they can bleed. Bleeding of internal hemorrhoids usually occurs with bowel movements, causing stools streaked with blood or toilet paper.
Internal hemorrhoids can be identified on the external examination if they go beyond effort or can be detected during a test with a flexible or rigid tube with a light and a camera that is inserted so that the doctor can see the inside of the anal canal and get off the rectum. Alternatively, your doctor may insert a small plastic speculum to examine the rectum. The speculum is called anoscope and the flexible tube is a sigmoidoscope.
A short tubular instrument called an anoscope is often inserted into the rectum to visualize the hemorrhoidal tissue and evaluate the anal canal. If blood is observed in the stool, a colonoscopy can be performed to rule out colorectal cancer and other more serious conditions. The pain and discomfort associated with mild hemorrhoidal disease can be treated with remedies at home. More severe cases require ligation or surgery.
Only a small proportion of people end up needing a surgical procedure. 2 Celsus 25 BC - 14 AD described ligation and excision procedures and discussed possible complications. Galen advocated cutting connecting the arteries to the veins, claiming that it reduced both the pain and the spread of gangrene. The Susruta Samhita 4th-5th century AD is similar to the words of Hippocrates, but emphasizes the cleanliness of the plague.
Surgery for hemorrhoids goes back to antiquity. The ancient Greeks, Romans and Indians have all described the surgeries used to relieve the pain and discomfort of enlarged hemorrhoids. These procedures greatly improved in the 13th century and surgical treatments accelerated further in the 19th century. During a hemorrhoidectomy, internal hemorrhoids and external hemorrhoids are severed.
A study conducted in Germany in 2002 revealed that butcher's broom was an effective means of treatment for patients with chronic venous insufficiency, a condition in which flow blood through the veins is inadequate, causing blood pooling. A 2010 study published in Phytotherapy Research investigated the efficacy of oral and topically applied herbal cream Pycnogenol® for the management of seizures.
Sometimes, prolapse hemorrhoids, or swell and swell outside the anal sphincter. Then you may be able to see them as wet bumps that are pinker than the surrounding area. And they are more likely to hurt, often when you poop. Prolapsular hemorrhoids usually come back on their own. Even if they do not, they can often be put back in place smoothly. A blood clot can form in an external hemorrhoid, making it purple or blue.
