Depends: On whether it is internal or external, just swollen or thrombosed, bleeding or not and whether you are sure it is a hemorrhoid and not an abscess. Bet bet is a colorectal surgeon.

Hemmorhoids: Many people present with "piles" and this can actually be the issue or one of many other problems that your doctor can help
there are dietary, behavioral, hygiene modifications as well as procedures that can help with these common problems.
Both constipation and diarrhea can lead to this condition as well
it is best if you consult with a general or colorectal surgeon to help with this matter.
