About Hemorrhoids

Back to the top

Hemorrhoids, also known as piles, are swollen veins located in and outside the anus and rectum. When these veins become enlarged, they can become uncomfortable and painful. External hemorrhoids develop underneath the skin surrounding the anus. This can cause swelling, irritation, pain, and bleeding around the anus. Internal hemorrhoids develop within the rectum, which can lead to bleeding during bowel movements and prolapsing (in which the vein pushes through the anal opening). Prolapsed hemorrhoids can cause pain and discomfort.

Hemorrhoids are usually caused by pressure on the lower body. This can be due to straining during bowel movements, straining from lifting heavy objects or weights, or weight gain. Pregnant women are at increased risk of hemorrhoids due to the associated weight gain.

Other risk factors that may cause hemorrhoids are:

  • Chronic diarrhea or constipation
  • Obesity
  • Anal intercourse
  • Low-fiber diets

Hemorrhoids are extremely common. One in twenty Americans, or three in four adults, will experience hemorrhoids at some point in time. Although they can be painful, hemorrhoids can usually be treated with at-home remedies and medical procedures. Untreated hemorrhoids can lead to rare but serious complications such as anemia, blood clots, and strangulated hemorrhoids (a cut-off in blood supply to the hemorrhoid, which causes severe pain).

Treatment Options

There are several options used to treat hemorrhoids, which are listed below. Talk to your provider about the treatment plan that’s right for you.

Hemorrhoids Care

The term primary care refers to the kind of medical care you need first — before you get sick, before you need to see a specialist, before you need to go to a hospital.
A primary care physician is a medical doctor trained to diagnose, treat, and prevent a wide array of diseases in patients of all ages and backgrounds. Primary care physicians conduct checkups, offer medical advice, provide medical care to the general population, and offer supplemental care with immunizations, vaccinations, and chronic condition management. Primary care doctors are sometimes referred to as family or internal medicine doctors.

Primary care physicians (PCPs) can diagnose, treat, and help prevent a variety of acute and chronic conditions, including:

Check-ups & Screenings

PCPs can provide the following routine check-up and diagnostic services

  • Blood pressure screening
  • Heartbeat monitoring (EKGs)
  • Lung tests (spirometry)
  • Cancer screenings (such as for breast cancer, testicular cancer, colorectal cancer, and prostate cancer)
  • Sexually transmitted infections (STIs)
  • Development disorder testing

Illness and injury care

Primary care physicians can help treat minor injuries and common illnesses, including:

  • Common cold
  • Flu
  • Asthma
  • Migraines
  • Urinary tract infections (UTIs)
  • Yeast infections
  • Rashes
  • Broken bone treatment (casting, splints, braces)

Preventative care and general wellness

Primary care physicians can play a key role in preventative care, general wellness, and disease prevention for a range of acute and chronic conditions. A primary care physician can offer medical advice, treat chronic conditions and injury, or refer you to a specialized doctor for further care if needed.

Primary care physicians can specialize in different medical fields. While most primary care physicians can treat a wide range of conditions, injuries, and illnesses, you may want to receive a specific type of care based on your need, including:

- Family medicine doctor: Family medicine doctors can treat a number of conditions, illnesses, and injuries in patients ranging from children to geriatric patients. Family medicine doctors may receive continued training in pediatrics and obstetrics to be able to treat children and women’s health conditions.

- Internists: Internists specialize in internal medicine for adults. Internists specialize in treating conditions such as asthma, heart disease, diabetes, lung disease, and hypertension.

- Pediatricians: Pediatricians are doctors who specialize in pediatric medicine, or the care of infants and children. Pediatricians can do check-ups for children, provide immunizations, diagnose conditions and illnesses, and prescribe medication.

- Physician assistants: Physician assistants are highly trained health care professionals that have received a Master’s degree and intensive training to be able to work alongside the primary care physician to diagnose, treat, and test for a number of conditions and diseases.

- Obstetrician/ gynecologist: Obstetrician/ gynecologists (OB-GYNs) are specially trained to treat and care for conditions related to women’s health. OB-GYNs help with fertility, childbirth, and issues specifically relating to the health of female reproductive organs.

Depending on the doctor, and the medical history of the patient, a primary care physician may test or screen for a number of conditions. During an adult check-up, a primary care physician may conduct general health screenings for conditions such as:
-Heart disease
-High blood pressure (hypertension)
-Cancers (such as skin cancer, breast cancer, prostate cancer, colorectal cancer, and testicular cancer)
-Diabetes
-Obesity
-Sexually transmitted infections (STIs)
-Lung health
-Depression and anxiety


A primary care physician has received intensive training to be able to diagnose these, and other conditions. Based on their medical advice, a patient may receive a referral for further testing and care with a specialized doctor. These doctors will often work with the patient’s primary care physician to develop a treatment plan that can address the patient’s particular care needs.

Primary care physicians have extensive experience diagnosing, treating, and managing a range of acute and chronic conditions for patients of all ages, including:

  • Cold, flu, and other acute illnesses
  • UTIs and other vaginal infections
  • Rashes, warts, moles, and other skin conditions
  • Erectile dysfunction (ED) or premature ejaculation (PE)
  • Diabetes (Type 1 and Type 2)
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Developmental disorders
  • Depression, anxiety, and other mental health conditions
Primary care consultations are appropriate for a wide variety of symptoms and diagnoses.
