Can A Colonoscopy Aggravate Internal Hemorrhoids
I had a colonoscopy last yr it was neg. I have internal/external hemorrhoids, today I have diarrhea and every time i wipe there's a lil blood worry?
No: You are young to have had a colonoscopy, and with negative findings, the blood is likely due to the hemorrhoids. Unless you have a strong family history, you should have a course of dietary changes to increase fiber and water intake to soften stools. If this fails, you may need to see a general or colorectal surgeon to have the hemorrhoids removed or banded. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How long do Hemorrhoids(Internal) take to heal?I had itching recently,and today had bits of blood on stool (already had Colonoscopy).Doesn't hurt much
Can take up to 2 wks: Most important, is prevention of these hemorrhoids. Often times it comes as a result of constipation, or not drinking enough liquids. If you're using any prescription like Proctofoam HC right now to bring relief, that will get you through this healing.

Constipation should be avoided as much as possible. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Are rectal hemorrhoids dangerous and how do they differ from a polyp? I have just had a colonoscopy and have hemorrhoids - not malignant thankfully.

Good bowel hygiene and proper diet will help and your Primary Care Provider can outline these suggestions to you! Worse case scenario is hemorrhoid surgery but this is usually NOT necessary!! Hope this helps!!! Good Luck! Dr Z ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can external hemorrhoids cause problems for someone who is going to undergo colonoscopy procedure ?
Is it the norm to get scheduled for a colonoscopy for hemorrhoids without anyone even checking visually for hemorrhoids? This procedure is costly.
Not the norm ...: But it all depends on the specific scenario & what symptoms are reported. If there is bright red rectal bleeding, nothing else, in a 35 year old, physical exam for hemorrhoids would come first. But if there are additional symptoms, and the person is of the age/risk level to need a colonoscopy for screening, then that procedure would be recommended. It is prudent to question these kinds of tests ...Read more
I have an anal fissure and have always had problems with hemorrhoids. Can a colonoscopy help with either one?
Anal fissure: A colonoscopy can rule out additional diagnosis, but does not treat with fissure or hemorrhoid. An exam of rectum under anesthesia with fissure repair and hemorrhoid removal could be of benefit. Ask for surgical referral/consult. Take a friend with you to hear the risk/benefit analysis and details of supporting you through recovery. Good luck. ...Read more
