Diet, medication: Simple things such as a high fiber diet, and stool softeners can reduce symptoms. Steroid suppositories or anal creams are also helpful. There are non surgical office based procedures such as rubber band ligation or infrared coagulation which will reduce the hemorrhoids. Surgery is usually reserved for only the most severe cases. The treatments don't increase cancer risk.
