Do you really need to treat internal hemorrhoid with canasa if you don't have bleeding or symptoms. Just small anal fissure.?

Do you really need to treat internal hemorrhoid  with canasa if you don't have bleeding or symptoms. Just small anal fissure.?

Anal fissure: Your anal fissure will need to be treated. The internal hemorrhoids are not bleeding so you can observe them. Life style is your choice. Most patients feel better after treatment.

Can mild internal (non-prolapsed) hemorrhoids heal on their own using conservative methods such as water and fiber? Or does that just ease symptoms?

Can mild internal (non-prolapsed) hemorrhoids heal on their own using conservative methods such as water and fiber? Or does that just ease symptoms?

Yes to both.: Hemorrhoids are a part of normal anorectal anatomy. When they swell, protrude, itch and burn, conservative care is most frequently curative. Sitz baths with Epsom salts 3-6X daily for 15 min each over a 1-2 week period is most helpful. Prevention by avoiding straining at stools with fiber and increased oral water intake is helpful. ...Read more

What to eat if u have internal piles?

Psyllium Fiber: If you want to only care for this without any surgical intervention, then psyllium fiber or an equivalent is likely the best treatment for long term. Make sure you purchase unflavored psyllium. Start with a teaspoon a night mixed in 16 oz of water every night. Unless they are stuck out and causing significant pain or itching, surgery can usually be avoided. ...Read more

I get side effects with suppositories available, [used for internal piles], please can you advice if there are any made of natural products on market?

Yes: Piles, or hemorrhoids, are swollen and inflamed veins in your anus and lower rectum and result from straining during bowel movements or pressure during pregnancy or sitting. Many effective options are available to treat hemorrhoids. Most people can get relief from symptoms using home treatments (sitz baths, pads containing witchhazel) and lifestyle changes (fiber, stool softeners). ...Read more

Can colonoscopy aggrivate internal hemerhoids? I had no pain or external before procedure. I had pain 6 weeks in anus after, I have had piles 4 3 months

Yes, but......: The bowel prep used prior to colonoscopy can cause hemorroidal flare up, but pain for 6 weeks may indicate that you have an anal tear (fissure). Also if the piles have not gone down for 3 months, you may have thrombosed ext. Hemorrhoids. You should be evaluated by a surgeon. ...Read more

My brothers have internal piles they don't want to go for surgery, is there any way to get rid of piles without surgery. And suggest good diet for the?

High fiber: Generally speaking, you can't get rid of hemorrhoids without surgery. However, by increasing the fiber in your diet, you can greatly reduce the size and severity of hemorrhoids and their symptoms. Eating a large bowl of unprocessed whole wheat bran (miller's bran) or taking psyllium seed like metamucil will achieve this. You want to take in at least 30 grams of fiber daily. ...Read more

Can you still lift weights with internal piles? What about abs and squats? Football player . I need help

Can you still lift weights with internal piles? What about abs and squats? Football player . I need help

Yes, usually: "internal piles" come in grades 1 to 4. One and two are minor, grade 3 needs to be pushed back in and 4 stays out all the time. If you have grade 3 or 4, check with a general surgeon. For grade one or two, lifting and exercise should be fine unless they prompt bleeding. Cut back on the Ibuprofen if that happens and use fiber supplements to bulk and soften the stool. See a surgeon if that fails. ...Read more

Maybe not hemorrhoid: Are you sure you have just hemorrhoids? Pain +/- pruritis (itching) 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.), prctalgia fugax. Depending on your age, risk factors, current medication (aspirin, nsaid's), circumstances, please seek evaluation to be certain. ...Read more
