Causes of Hemorrhoids 

Some of the common causes of hemorrhoids include: 

  • Pregnancy 
  • Low fiber diet that leads to constipation 
  • Obesity 
  • Regular heavy lifting 
  • Straining during bowel movements 
  • Chronic diarrhea 

Symptoms of Hemorrhoids 

Common signs and symptoms of hemorrhoids are dependent on the type of hemorrhoid an individual develops. These include: 

External hemorrhoids 

  • Swelling around the anus 
  • Bleeding 
  • Pain on the area 
  • Itching and irritation 

Internal hemorrhoids  

  • Usually do not present any obvious symptoms, however, they can lead to bleeding, which is evident in the stool. 

Diagnosis of Hemorrhoids 

External Hemorrhoids 

External hemorrhoids can easily be diagnosed by the doctor since they can be observed from the outside. However, in the diagnosis of internal hemorrhoids, it might include an examination of the patient’s anal canal and rectum. This may include a physical examination and visual inspection using an anoscope, proctoscope, or sigmoidoscope.  It’s some circumstances the doctor might want to examine the patient’s entire colon using colonoscopy if: 

  • The patient’s symptoms suggest that he/she might have another digestive system condition 
  • If the patient has risk factors for colorectal cancer 
  • If the patient hasn’t had a recent colonoscopy 

Internal Hemorrhoids 

During diagnosis, the doctor will look for: 

  • Bleeding that is painless during bowel movement whereby small amounts of bright red blood may be seen on the patient’s bowels 
  • A prolapsed or projecting hemorrhoid that pushes through the anal opening, causing discomfort and irritation 

Thrombosed Hemorrhoids 

For these types of hemorrhoids, the doctor will look for symptoms such as: 

  • Swelling 
  • Inflammation 
  • Severe pain 
  • A hard lump near an individual’s anus 

Risk Factors of Hemorrhoids 

Hemorrhoids are more likely to occur as an individual becomes older. This is due to the possibility of weakening and stretching in the tissues supporting an individual’s rectum and anus veins. During pregnancy, as a result of the baby’s weight placing pressure on the anal region, this may also occur. 

Treatment of Hemorrhoids 

Hemorrhoids can be treated conservatively with life style changes and medication, or through minimally invasive surgery. 

Medication 

The doctor might suggest over-the-counter creams, ointments, suppositories, or pads for hemorrhoids that produce only mild discomfort.  

Minimally invasive procedures 

Minimally invasive procedures can be recommended by a doctor in case of persistent bleeding or painful hemorrhoids. These procedures do not usually require anesthesia, and include: 

  • THD – Ultrasound Assisted Technique 
  • Laser Treatment Technique 
  • Rubber band ligation 
  • Injection (sclerotherapy) 
  • Coagulation  

Surgical interventions 

Only a small percentage of people with hemorrhoids require surgery. Therefore, surgical interventions are necessary if other procedures haven’t been successful, or the patient has large hemorrhoids.
