I got a hemorrhoid examined yesterday at an urgent care and there was a cut/ tear in it. the lady said it looked good and should heal up fine, but today it oozed out all the blood in it and became deflated is this normal?

Hemorrhoids: Yes, a hemorrhoid can shrink and stop bleeding. They can also get congested again. I find that a proctologist is best to treat and provide follow-up care for hemorrhoids.
