A member asked:

What happens you get a external hemorrhoid banded?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Painful: There are internal & external hemorrhoids. Internal ones can be banded because there are no skin nerve pain fibers, as compared to external ones. External ones have skin pain nerve fibers & would not be comfortable to band those. Banding internal hemorrhoids may make the external ones resolve if they are not too large.
