In brief: Several
Hot sitz baths (free!), preparation h, witch hazel, or anusol all can help.
High fiber diet (think "fiber one" or "all bran" cereal) and not straining can help prevent hemorrhoids. Surgery is the very last resort and usually not necessary.

In brief: Depends
On the cause. However stool softeners if constipation is the problem can be helpful.
Also preparation h works fairly well.
