Will Hemorrhoids Go Away on Their Own?

Answer

Hemorrhoids are swollen, painful veins located in the lower portion of the rectum or anus. They can occur internally (located just inside the anus) or externally (at the anal opening, on occasion hanging outside of the anus).

The most common causes of hemorrhoids include excessive straining during bowel movements, constipation, anal infections, or sitting for long periods of time. They also commonly occur during pregnancy and after childbirth. Treatment for hemorrhoids varies, and depends on the severity of the swelling and if bleeding is present.

Mild hemorrhoids can be treated by taking warm baths, using ice packs to bring down swelling and applying topical ointments that are easily found at your local drug store. If symptoms last longer than a week, make an appointment with your healthcare provider. More severe hemorrhoids must be treated with minimally invasive procedures (such as excision, injection, or rubber band ligation) that are easily performed in your doctor's office.
