At HemRelief Hemorrhoid Centers, we believe no one should have to suffer from painful, uncomfortable hemorrhoids. While it can be tempting to keep quiet about hemorrhoids and simply hope that they go away, the truth is that help is closer than you think. With proper care and an expert doctor, hemorrhoids are completely treatable, and if you have been putting off getting seen, there are a number of signs out there that it is time to make an appointment.
When Is The Time Right?
At their mildest, hemorrhoids can cause itching, burning, and general discomfort as you go about your daily life. While sometimes this is little more than a nuisance, it can also grow to be a significant problem. When does an otherwise small annoyance turn into a medical problem? As it turns out, there are a few major signs that you should watch out for that signal when it is time to see a doctor about hemorrhoids. These include:
- Rectal Bleeding: The first and most important sign is rectal bleeding. If you find that you are experiencing rectal bleeding, this may be a sign of a more significant condition, so it is best to get examined. Keep in mind the bleeding may happen internally, so also watch out for stools that are maroon or tarry in color, as these can be a sign of bleeding.
- Anal Pain: If you are experiencing acute, severe, and persistent anal pain, this may be a sign of thrombosed hemorrhoids. These occur when blood clots in the hemorrhoid, which can lead to even more serious conditions. An examination will determine the extent of the problem and let you take action before things turn more serious.
- Persistent Symptoms: If you have tried hemorrhoid creams, sitz baths, fiber supplements, increased water intake, pain relievers, and other over-the-counter methods and they do not seem to be working, it is probably time to make an appointment. A doctor can determine whether or not your hemorrhoids are too severe for over the counter methods and can help you get the treatment you need to reclaim your sense of comfort.
