internal hemorrhoids

how could it be determined when a physician must remove surgically internal hemorrhoids? how could a doctor go about determining this? when must one undergo surgery to remove them? when is it absolutely necessary to remove them surgically? anyone? rsvp.

Re: internal hemorrhoids

If you go see a GI doctor, they can tell you if you have internal hemorrhoids or if they are something else. Fissures often feel like Internal Hemorrhoids.

If they are not bothering you, are not protruding and causing pain, they do not have to be removed. There are several alternatives to surgically removing them- some alternatives are done in the office without any pain. My husband had several removed with a system in the office which is non surgical. He drove back to work afterwards.

You need a GI doctor to talk about options and to find out if you actually have hemorrhoids.
