Colonoscopy revealed grade 1 external hemorrhoids, hypertrophied anal papilla (3mm), & tortuous sigmoid colon. Please explain what this all means.
Fairly normal: These can all be common and benign findings. Grade 1 are tiny hemorrhoid veins located at the anal opening & needs no treatment.

Eat more fiber. See your GI doctor for follow up. ...Read more
