I am being treated for grade 2 internal hemorrhoids, can they cause urinary or prostate type pain?

I am being treated for grade 2 internal hemorrhoids, can they cause urinary or prostate type pain?

No it does not: Hemorroids causes painless bleeding from the rectum and usually associated with defecation. It can cause a heaviness in that area and itching on occasion but will not cause severe pain unless the hemorroid is Stage 3 (which means its bleeding, prolapsed and edematous and swollen and so cannot return back into the rectum. This is treated with surgery thanks

No: No, but medication can rx the problem. Kegel;s exercises will strengthen the pubococcygeal muscle and levator ani, but do nothing to rx the hemorrhoids.

What could you say about benign kidney cyst, ganglion cyst, grade 2 internal hemorrhoids, slight heart murmur?

Depends: All are relatively benign in nature. Probably more of us have other similar findings if we looked for them. I suspect a normal life.

Fissure: Typically a rectal fissure is the source of severe rectal pain and bleeding. The hemorrhoids are less painful, cause bleeding, and often hide the fissure located under or deep to the hemorrhoid. Initial treatment is softer, smaller caliber stool with bowel regimen. If not getting better, then surgery consultation. Take a friend with you. Be well

I have grade 2 internal and external hemorrhoids - how often should I get a colonoscopy?

I have grade 2 internal and external hemorrhoids - how often should I get a colonoscopy?

No need: You should not have colonoscopy just for hemorrhoids. Some times bleeding in cancer of colon and rectum is attributed to hemorrhoids. Anoscopy and proctoscopy in doctor office is enough for it.

I have had several internal hemorrhoids removed and now I have to wipe excessively to get clean. Sometimes an hour or two later, I wipe again but very little. No blood, no pain no urge to go.

I have had several internal hemorrhoids removed and now I have to wipe excessively to get clean. Sometimes an hour or two later, I wipe again but very little. No blood, no pain no urge to go.

Pasty gooey: Hard to clean stool is usually due to a lack of fluids usually about 40 ounces short for the day. Stay away from caffeine and alcohol and increase your fluids. This should help in 3-4 days. You may also have had damage to your sphincter muscles from the surgery. This too needs to be evaluated.

Is there any way to be so sure if I have internal hemorrhoids?

Texture/Doctor Exam: Most hemorrhoids (varicose veins of the anus) are soft, squishy tissue that distend after straining or having a bm, and may bleed. If a hemorrhoid becomes firm, enlarged, and tender, it may have thrombosed (clotted). This is treated w/ pain medication and time. Anal lump present all the time requires medical attention to assure that it isn't something else. See fp, gi, or surgeon! Good luck!

Is there any methods to cure "internal hemorrhoids" beside eating more fibre. I have it for like 5 months now.

Is there any methods to cure "internal hemorrhoids" beside eating more fibre. I have it for like 5 months now.

Not really: If you are not having bothersome bleeding or pain, there is nothing to worry about. You want to avoid constipation and hard stools which will cause you to strain when you have a bowel movement. Fiber, fluid, exercise.

I have grade II internal hemorrhoids, what should I do?

I have grade II internal hemorrhoids, what should I do?

Office treatment: If your internal hemorrhoids prolapse out through your anus to the point that you notice it, that is not likely to go away on its own (the horse is out of the barn), and it may eventually get to the point that you have to manually push them back in. Most grade 2 internal hemorrhoid prolapse is easily treated with safe and often painless office procedures like rubber band ligation.

I have internal hemorrhoids. I'm a male. Will regular vaginal intercouse affect them at all?

I have internal hemorrhoids. I'm a male. Will regular vaginal intercouse affect them at all?

No: Straining to have bowel movements, lifting, or chronic deep coughing can make the hemorrhoids worse but vaginal intercourse with a woman should have no effect on a man's hemorrhoids.

Banding: True internal hemorrhoids can be treated in the office by rubber band ligation. In the office, a rubber band is placed on the base of the hemorrhoid. The hemorrhoid will fall off in about a week.

I have bleeding from apparent internal hemorrhoids. At what point should this become worrisome? Or does it ever? Any advice?

I have bleeding from apparent internal hemorrhoids. At what point should this become worrisome? Or does it ever? Any advice?

Check it out: You always want to check it out to make sure the diagnosis is correct. Ben at age 40, I would strongly consider having a colonoscopy. May also want to get a consultation with a colorectal surgeon for more info about hemorrhoid treatment. Ita not always surgical. Hope this helps!

Why would I still have bleeding from internal hemorrhoids 2 weeks after having the banding ligation procedure done?

Why would I still have bleeding from internal hemorrhoids 2 weeks after having the banding ligation procedure done?

Thrombosing: Banding hemorrhoids causes them to thrombose, or clot off. But this may shift venous flow to other dilated veins in the rectum leading to new hemorrhoids. So it's either that the old hemorrhoids have clotted but continue to ooze, or that new hemorrhoids have formed. You should ask your doctor to examine you for more information.
