Welcome to our clinic! We would like to provide you with important information about hemorrhoids, including their symptoms, treatment options, and ways to alleviate the symptoms.

What are hemorrhoids?

Hemorrhoids are a condition in which the veins in the rectum or anus become enlarged and inflamed. This can lead to symptoms such as pain, itching, burning, bleeding during bowel movements, discomfort, or the presence of lumps around the anus.

Causes of hemorrhoids

Hemorrhoids can be caused by various factors, including excessive straining during bowel movements, a sedentary lifestyle, constipation, chronic diarrhea, pregnancy, obesity, and heredity.

Symptoms of hemorrhoids

The most common symptoms of hemorrhoids include pain and discomfort in the rectal area, itching, burning, bleeding during bowel movements, and the presence of lumps or protrusions around the anus. If you experience these symptoms, it is important to consult with a specialist.

Diagnosis of hemorrhoids

A specialist, such as a proctologist, will perform a thorough physical examination, which may include an examination of the rectum and anus, and an assessment of the degree of hemorrhoidal disease. In some cases, additional tests such as anoscopy or sigmoidoscopy may be necessary.

Treatment options

The treatment of hemorrhoids depends on the degree of severity and symptoms. For mild cases, lifestyle changes may be recommended, such as increasing fiber intake, avoiding straining during bowel movements, and maintaining proper hygiene. In more advanced cases, pain medications, ointments, or oral medications may be prescribed. In some cases, procedures such as sclerotherapy, rubber band ligation, cryotherapy, or surgery may be necessary.

Prevention and healthy lifestyle

To reduce the risk of hemorrhoids, it is recommended to maintain a healthy lifestyle, including regular consumption of fiber and an adequate amount of water, maintaining a healthy weight, avoiding excessive straining during bowel movements, engaging in physical activity, and avoiding a sedentary lifestyle.
