How can Hemorrhoids be Treated?

For many individuals, a conversation and examination for hemorrhoids can be embarrassing, even though hemorrhoids are more common than many patients even realize. Hemorrhoids can develop in just about anyone, and is typically caused by pressure around the rectum and anus. This pressure can be caused from a variety of reasons, from difficult bowel movements, long periods of sitting down, and even pregnancy. Paired with pain, bleeding, and itching, hemorrhoids can be extremely inconvenient and uncomfortable.

Hemorrhoids can be treated in a variety of ways, both surgical and non-surgical. One of the first suggestions for individuals with hemorrhoids is to try and avoid what caused them in the first place, whether it is sitting for long periods of time or having difficult bowel movements. A simple change in your diet can make it easier for you to pass your bowels, and can help reduce or eliminate the risk of experiencing hemorrhoids again.

There are some nonsurgical procedures that can be done which help to reduce the blood supply to the hemorrhoid in order to shrink it or make it go away completely. This can be done at Dr. Franklin's office. Dr. Franklin offers Hemorrhoidlysis treatments, which is a non-invasive way of relieving the pain and pressure from hemorrhoids.

In more severe cases, surgery may need to be done, but this is typically suggested after other non-surgical routes have been considered. This is oftentimes required for larger, more internal hemorrhoids, or hemorrhoids that do not respond to other treatments and changes in diet.
