Hemorrhoids: There are several treatment options for hemorrhoids. You can use topical medications to help shrink them down. You can try rubber bands, sclerotherapy, or infrared coagulation. A hemorrhoidopexy can staple the hemorrhoids on the inside and make them go away. Usually surgical excision is reserved for extreme cases. Best to see a surgeon for further evaluation.

See below: Some hemorrhoids can be treated with compounds such as preparation-h. If the hemorrhoids become lotted (very firm) surgery may be the only option. Talk to your surgeon about possible options for you.
