Hemorrhoids: We are all born with hemorrhoids. Most likely you wont have any symptoms and if you do, they will most likely be abled to be handled with conservative measures. If you are having symptoms, then a specialist can look inside and let you know if any one of your hemorrhoids is significant enough to treat and what measure best to treat it.
