Treatments can be diet modification, banding and surgery. ...Read more

Does bleeding from hemorrhoids come in go ? Colonscopy in 2013 confirmed hemorrhoids now bleeding again more this week, CBC normal in june.

Small soft bump near anus, doesn't hurt and is the same color as the surrounding skin. No bleeding. External hemorrhoid? If so, how to get rid of it?

Small soft bump near anus, doesn't hurt and is the same color as the surrounding skin. No bleeding. External hemorrhoid? If so, how to get rid of it?

Keep your bowel movements on the soft side with good fluid and fiber intake to avoid straining. If you have continued concerns, consult a proctologist or colon-rectal surgeon. ...Read more
