In brief: First,fiber & fluids
Eat foods high in fiber- fruits, veggies, whole grain cereals and breads, drink lots of water. Decrease caffeine and alcohol intake.
Don't strain at stool, or read on the toilet. Most people respond to these simple guidelines. Still have concerns? See your doctor or a colorectal surgeon for exam and treatment. Most people do not need hemorrhoid surgery.

In brief: With respect
Hemorrhoids can often be treated with diet modification including fiber supplements and high fiber foods.
Adequate hydration is important too. Sitz baths 2-3 times a day (soaking your bottom in warm water for 5-10 miniutes) can be helpful. Avoid straining and use stool softeners if necessary. Creams and suppositories can help and if all else fails, see a doctor to consider banding or surgery.

In brief: Hemorrhoids
Hemorrhoids are swollen veins in the anal canal.
This common problem can be painful, but it's usually not serious. http://www.webmd.com/digestive-disorders/tc/hemorrhoids-topic-overview-1#1
