diet and exercise: Eating a balanced diet, rich in fiber, is one of the most effective lifestyle changes you can make for your hemorrhoids.

Maybe not hemorrhoid: Are you sure you have just hemorrhoids? Pain +/- pruritis (itching) from the rectum that recurs may also indicate anal fissures, proctitis (due to infection, inflammatory bowel disease, radiation therapy, stercoral ulcers, rectal prolapse, trauma, etc.), prctalgia fugax. Depending on your age, risk factors, current medication (aspirin, nsaid's), circumstances, you will want to get evaluated. ...Read more

Hello, my son is 5 years old, month ago he was diagnosed with hemorrhoid & went through surgery on 24 Jan still passing blood mixed with stool on&off?

Hello, my son is 5 years old, month ago he was diagnosed with hemorrhoid & went through surgery on 24 Jan still passing blood mixed with stool on&off?

Perhaps there is a terminology/translation issue. 5 yo's pass blood in their stool from anal fissures, and these can heal with a skin tag that can look like a hemorrhoid. Any surgery on the area will not change the stooling problem that triggered the fissure. Working to keep stools soft for months may fix this. ...Read more
