Very common problem: internal hemorrhoids are very common. Did you have a sigmoidoscopy or colonoscopy for diagnosis? Are you having any symptoms from the hemorrhoids such as prolapse, and incontinence, or pain? Many home remedies typically focus on treatment of symptoms but do not prevent enlargement and prolapse over time. If having symptoms I always recommend treatment before becoming large and complicated.
