Yes: Hemorrhoids are a normal part of our anatomy. We have three and each has an internal and external component. The treatment should be based upon each persons specific symptoms. Internal component can be managed with minor office procedures such as banding but external component requires surgical excision if bad. Medical therapy can cause them to shrink but by definition they cannot "go away"
