In brief: Diet and fluids

Generally warm tub soaks in plain water for 15-20 minutes several times per day and after a bm, bed rest if severely swollen and correcting constipation and/or diarrhea.
Eat a high fiber diet and drink 80-100 oz of non caffeinated, non alcoholic fluids daily. Occasionaly rubber band ligation or surgery is indicated if the above fails to improve the situation.

In brief: Procedure

Depends on your symptoms (leakage/seepage, prolapse, bleeding, etc.
) a number of office procedures (injection, banding, infrared cog) can be helpful for grade 1 or 2 presentation. For grade 3 or 4 hemorrhoids, it is better to have surgery ( stapling or excision).
