Re: Im 18/m and dont know what to do.
Small ones can in a way, hemorrhoids are basically anal fissures, most are inside the anus and many dont even realize they have them, till they appear on the outside. When the swelling goes down, they can recede back into the anal area. If they are larger sometimes they dont. I have had one since the age of 22 from giving birth to my daughter, the pushing and straining. It doesnt bother me, and its not likely most people are going to notice it. If this bothers you about possible appearances, doctors do perform surgery, mostly if it is the extreme soreness, and clusters of them.
Do try the hemorrhoids cream, tucks pad, etc for swelling and itching, try not to strain when going to the bathroom, if the swelling hasnt reduced and itching within one month, then see your doctor.
