Hemorrhoids / Hemorrhoids?
Hello doctor. So, I don’t understand more what hemorrhoids are. But when I squat on the toilet I felt a lump, but when I stood up came back (there was no lump) and when I sat down, it didn’t hurt at all. But yesterday when I chopped, there was fresh blood on the tissue .. So is this dangerous? And what is the handling? what is the difference between internal hemorrhoids or external hemorrhoids? Thank you … Please answer, doctor …
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Judging from the information you have conveyed, it is likely that your complaint is caused by hemorrhoids / hemorrhoids, or in the medical realm it is more commonly known as hemorrhoids.
Hemorrhoids can describe a swelling that occurs in the veins around the anus or lower rectum. This condition is divided into 2, namely internal hemorrhoids (internal hemorrhoids) and external (external hemorrhoids). These two types of hemorrhoids are distinguished by the location of the swollen blood vessels, so that some develop a lump that comes out of the anal canal, and some do not. Your condition may include external hemorrhoids.
Unusual hemorrhoids are characterized by discomfort around the anus, can be painful, lumpy, or common itching. In addition, external hemorrhoids will also cause the sufferer to experience fresh-blooded stool, and a flesh-like lump appears out of the anal canal. Lumps due to hemorrhoids can be intermittent, or they can appear continuously so that they experience tissue death (incarcerata). This condition needs to be examined directly by a doctor so that it is identified early and treated more quickly.
There are various other conditions that can also cause complaints as you experience, including rectal prolapse (rectum that drops down due to weakened pelvic walls), infections around the anus, benign or malignant tumors, anal fissures (tears of the anal wall), anal abscesses (pus-filled sacs that form around the anus as a result of infection), and so on.
Therefore, it is necessary to examine a doctor or surgeon to distinguish each of these possibilities. If it is true that your condition includes external hemorrhoids, then treatment can be done conservatively, namely by administering medication and lifestyle modifications, or even surgery. Consult with your doctor in determining the best treatment for your condition.
In the meantime, you can do the following steps:
Reduce conditions that can increase pressure in the abdominal cavity and pelvis, for example:
Lifting or pushing heavy objects
Overweight or obesity
Sitting too long
Excessive straining, for example due to diarrhea, sneezing, or excessive coughing
Avoid anal sex
Avoid pulling forcibly on the lump that appears in the anus
Always keep your anus clean
Do not consume drugs carelessly, unless prescribed directly by a doctor
Hope it helps ..
