The term "Hemorrhoids" refers to a condition in which the veins around the anus are swollen and irritated. Hemorrhoids in many cases are the result of intense “pushing”. There are many other factors such as pregnancy, age, chronic constipation, diarrhea, spending too much time sitting down or certain diseases such as hepatic cirrhosis that also cause hemorrhoids. Hemorrhoids could either be inside the anus (internal hemorrhoids) or beneath the skin around the anus (external hemorrhoids).
A complete evaluation is necessary to diagnose hemorrhoids specially when there is anal bleeding or blood in your stool.
At Clinica Medica General we offer treatments to relieve pain, improve and treat the condition. Laser surgery for certain cases and a nutrition plan to prevent future hemorrhoids may be what is needed.
