The term hemorrhoids refers to a condition in which the veins around the anus are swollen and irritated. Hemorrhoids in many cases, is the result of intense “pushing”, however, there are other factors such as pregnancy, age, chronic constipation, diarrhea o spending too much time sitting down or certain diseases such as hepatic cirrhosis. Hemorrhoids could either be inside the anus (internal) or beneath the skin around the anus (external).
A complete evaluation is necessary to diagnose hemorrhoids specially when there is anal bleeding or blood in your stool.
At Clinica Medica General we offer treatments to relief pain, improve and treat the condition, laser surgery for certain cases and a nutrition plan to prevent future hemorrhoids.
