| | Hemorroids?
Hi. Today my doctor diagnosed me as having hemorroids. I'm sure that my doctor is much more knowledgeable than I am, but after looking around on the internet I think that what I have are skin flaps left over from hemorroids. There are 2 flaps of skin which protrude from my rectal area, and they don't utch or hurt. I've had them for about 3 months. I don't remember ever having hemorroids, but I do bleed from my rectum when I use the bathroom every few months.
I guess my question is, how do I know for sure if these are hemorroids or just skin flaps? If they are skin flaps will they go away on their own, or is there anything I can do to shrink them? I really do want them to go away. Should I see another doctor? If so, can I see a general MD or a specialist?
Thanks in advacne to anybody that replies !
