Non-surgical and Virtually Painless Treatments!

Hemorrhoids is not a frequently discussed topic, and is more common than many people think. Most people are frightened by the thought of surgery and just tolerate the pain. It is estimated that 50% of Americans will, at some point in their lives, suffer from hemorrhoids.

Hemorrhoids are actually part of a normal, healthy anatomy. They are cushions of vascular tissue. These tissues sometimes swell and bleed, which causes pain and/or discomfort. Small hemorrhoids are treatable with medication and diet changes. For more complex cases, surgery may be required.

“Very skilled doctor, nice and efficient front desk/assistant, clean and comfortable clinical environment.”

HEMORRHOID CLASSIFICATION

grade 1 hemorrhoid Grade 1
Hemorrhoid

First Degree Hemorrhoids bleed but do not prolapse outside of the anal canal. You may see blood in your stool or when you wipe after a bowel movement, but the swollen tissue will remain inside the anal canal.

grade 1 hemorrhoid Grade 2
Hemorrhoid

A Second Degree Hemorrhoid prolapses outside of the anal canal (mostly when defecating), but will retract spontaneously. So, you may feel momentary discomfort when the tissue comes out of the anal canal, but the discomfort will subside when the hemorrhoid retracts.

grade 3 hemorrhoid Grade 3
Hemorrhoid

A Third Degree Hemorrhoid prolapses a little more than a Second Degree Hemorrhoid. It remains protruding outside of the anal canal until manually pushed back inside the canal. The hemorrhoid may feel like an uncomfortable bulge on your anus and may be painful.

grade 4 hemorrhoid Grade 4
Hemorrhoid

Similar to Third Degree Hemorrhoids, Fourth Degree Hemorrhoids prolapse outside of the anal canal and do not retract spontaneously. Fourth Degree Hemorrhoids usually contain strangulated or thrombosed tissue that needs to be removed. These hemorrhoids cannot be manually replaced. These hemorrhoids cause great discomfort and pain.


Do These Symptoms Sound Familiar?

Hemorrhoids are very common and are usually not serious. Often times they can be managed with home remedies, but it is still important to consult a good doctor. Typical symptoms of hemorrhoids, can actually be caused by other diseases, some of them serious, like colon cancer. It is always better to get a full checkup and diagnosis from a doctor.

If left untreated, not only do hemorrhoids get worse over time, but they also become harder to treat. A hemorrhoid that can easily be banded could eventually require surgery if not treated properly. Don’t wait!

Should I See Dr. Magdi Alexander?

Most hemorrhoids can be managed at home. However, some hemorrhoids can become a serious health issue. If you have any symptoms of hemorrhoids for more than a week, you should make an appointment with Dr. Magdi Alexander for a consultation.
