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.

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.

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
