In brief: Rarely need to.
First, see your doctor to make sure your problem really is hemorrhoids.
Serious problems are frequently blamed on "hemorrhoids". Hemorrhoids can usually be treated medically by avoiding constipation and avoiding straning with a bowel movement. If pain/itching present, try soaking in tub. If not better they can be removed by different methods (band ligation or surgery) but i rarely recommend these.
