I keep reading about internal hemorrhoids not hurting(even on here said the same).Docs checked me and said mine are all internal.No fissure.Why hurt?

Who examined you: We are born with hemorrhoid tissue and there is an external and internal component to all 3. There are no pain nerve fibers above the anus where the internal hemorrhoids are found so they really cannot hurt. Yes anal fissure is one of they most common causes of anal pain but not the only cause. Complete examination of this area is difficult and should be done by a specialist. ...Read more

Can I use ice to sooth pain from internal hemorrhoid or fissure? Saw idea to freeze water in glove & insert. anucort helpin but still in constant pain

Freeze the pain: Cold usually dulls the pain from any tissue as it reduces nerve transmission but at the same time it will also reduce local blood flow (think frost bite!) which may not be a good idea. Your best answer would be a surgical treatment for the hemorrhoids and the fissure. Please consult a general surgeon for your options. ...Read more

Dr. Said I have an inflamed anus either because of internal hemmrhoid or fissure. Says not to worry. No family history of colon cancer I am 42.

Dr. Said I have an inflamed anus either because of internal hemmrhoid or fissure. Says not to worry. No family history of colon cancer I am 42.

Get treatment: Whether it is hemorrhoids or anal fissure, you should get it treated. Without family history of early age colon cancer, you do not need to worry about that. When you turn 50, get a screening colonoscopy. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more
