Question:

Answer:

It all depends on the kind of symptoms the hemorrhoids are causing. Symptoms due to internal hemorrhoids differ from those caused by external hemorrhoids, and it is the symptom that needs to be addressed. Many modalities are available, and include dietary, fiber therapy, fluid therapy, bowel regimens, non-surgical, and surgical interventions. A consultation with your local proctologist or colorectal surgeon will help you sort out which is best for you.
