Hard Painful Hemorrhoids
I have a very hard, external hemorrhoid (my first). It seemed to come on quickly after 2 days of diarrhea. (no other symptoms) very painful. Help?
Sounds like: Thrombosed external hemorroid. Try otc topicals with hydrocortisone or anesthetic. Lying down to reduce pressure to area and ice pack can also help. If these don't work sometimes the clot needs to be surgically removed. Although painful, this condition will subside. More important is cause of diarrhea. Make sure it is nothing serious. Get colonoscopy if you have not had one.
I get inflamed external hemorrhoids randomly once or twice a year where the vein bulges and becomes hard and painful for 2 weeks. Why & what to do?
Thrombose Hemorrhoid: You most likely develop Thrombosed Hemorrhoid which it means the blood clots from inside the Hemorrhoid, this condition is very painful and the Hemorrhoid looks bluish or purple. Sometimes they could resolve by itself but it can be excised by the surgeon, if you get this couple of times a yea it's time for you to see a surgeon for possible Hemorrhoid surgery, try to prevent constipation, sits bathSee 3 more doctor answers
Yes: Internal hemorrhoids can bleed without any pain at all. Internal hemorrhoids are located above the "dentate line." this is where the lining of your colon meets the skin of your butt (similar to the difference between the outside of you lips and the inside of your mouth). Above the dentate line there is very minimal sensation, so irritated internal hemorrhoid tissue can bleed without pain.See 1 more doctor answer
Maybe: External hemorrhoids usually hurt and occassionally bleed, internal hemorrhoids usually bleed without pain unless they prolapse to the outside. Prolapsed internal hemorrhoids are not external hemorrhoids and are treated differently than true external hemorrhoids. Bleeding and pain is often a fissure. Get a colon and rectal surgeon to evaluate it properly.See 1 more doctor answer
No: Hemorrhoids are congenital accelerated by constipation and straining at stool
Water, diet, walking: Hemorrhoids are a common problem, which result from increased pressure in the veins of the anus causing the veins to swell, making them itchy and painful (especially if the hemorrhoid clots, also known as thrombosis). The pain is from stretching the lining of the anal canal from the engorged hemorrhoids. Treatment is directed at treating the underlying cause for hemorrhoids.
I had hemorrhoids for 6 six years. They have recently gotten very bad and nothing helps. They are almost constant and very painful.
See a surgeon: Depending on whether they are internal or external, a colorectal surgeon can help you decide if surgical correction is right for you.
I've had a feeling of being full. There's pressure but it didn't hurt til now it's been 3 weeks last two days painful internal hemorrhoid?
Various: Most heal by themselves, but may require numbing cream, diet modification, less straining, less time sitting on toilet or even surgery. If yours is long lasting, you may be better off seeing a doctor for possible intervention. Http://www. Mayoclinic. Org/diseases-conditions/hemorrhoids/basics/definition/con-20029852

Not necessarily: This may be what is called a "thrombosed hemorrhoid", which is when clotted blood is trapped under the skin. If this is the case, the body usually reabsorbs it over time, or sometimes it can erode through the skin and evacuate externally. Safest course would be to have your doctor check it to make sure this is nothing more serious.
Hemorrhoids: Hemorrhoids are swollen veins in the anal canal. This common problem can be painful, but it's usually not serious. Http://www. Webmd. Com/digestive-disorders/tc/hemorrhoids-topic-overview-1#1See 1 more doctor answer
What do you recommend if I have a grade 1 internal hemorrhoid and it is very painful. Is this normal?
Yes: Yes, they are. It is secondary to the thrombotic process itself.
