Check with a surgeon: You can call a surgeon's office and get an estimate for the office visit. At that time, he of she will give you recommendations for treatment and you can ask the office staff what the cost would be for that procedure. The office manager may be able to cut you a deal. Keep in mind the surgery center and anesthesiologist may also give you estimates. ...Read more

What are some reasons for a bleeding hemorrhoid when you have loose stools and how do you get the bleeding to stop.?

Just hemorrhoids?: Are you sure you have just hemorrhoids? Bleeding 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.) or a bleeding source further upstream.

Rarely my hemorrhoid will bleed during a harder passing stool. When I push it back in the anus, the bleeding stops. Why only bleeds when outside?

Lower pressure...: Pushing the hemorrhoid into anus will lessen the blood pressure inside the dilated veins (hemorrhoid) and induce the pressuring tamponade effect by natural anal sphincteric contraction; together, natural hemostasis enhances and occurs. ...Read more

I think my external hemorrhoid ruptured. It looks black and blood consistently coming out. Looks like open wound. How long before its stops bleeding?

Care of hemorrhoids: I agree about likely rupture. Hemorrhoids are a dilation and swelling of the expandable tissue around the rectal opening. Non operative treatment includes a bowel regimen (fiber, stool softeners, laxatives to goal of 2 soft bowel movements daily) local salves (prep h, desitin, (zinc oxide diaper cream) anti fungals,) and hygiene (shower, hair dryerdryer daily). Surgery when above fails. Ok to see doc. ...Read more

What can I do for external hemorrhoid at home. It's painful. I try to push it back in but that doesn't work. Not bleeding.?

May be thrombosed: A thrombosed hemorrhoid occurs when the blood vessel within the hemorrhoid becomes clotted. It then becomes swollen and painful. The natural history is that the blood clot will eventually dissolve, but it will often takes 2 wks or more. Sitting in a tub of warm water may help with pain, as sell as Proctofoam. But I see a lot of pts who have tried these without relief and they request operation ...Read more

How much bleeding is normal with hemorrhoids?

Can look like a lot: Sometimes hemorrhoid bleeding can look like a lot because of the toilet bowl "filling" up with what looks like the whole bowl but it really is just diluted blood. Rarely can some people bleed enough to get anemic from it. If it is a recurrent problem that topical otc creams/suppositories don't help, see a GI specialist to get scoped just to be on the safe side. ...Read more

My hemorrhoid is bleeding, can it become infected?

My hemorrhoid is bleeding, can it become infected?

No: The excellent circulation to the rectum and the resulting delivery of infection fighting blood cells make hemorrhoid infections pretty rare. The itching and redness at the rectal opening is often complicated by yeast (monilial) colonization from the bowel. I've found the use of an antifungal (eg Clotrimazole which is over the counter) and some cortisone cream very helpful to get rid of the itch. ...Read more
