Guiding You to Digestive Health

Here at NYBG Colorectal, we have extensive experience with a number of issues relating to the lower intestine, including hemorrhoids. While this issue is typically quite painless at its onset, it can progress and become much worse, as is the case with many of the issues that we treat. If you’re concerned about the presence of hemorrhoids or have internal hemorrhoids that have progressed and become external hemorrhoids, we recommend coming in for an exam. We’ll be able to craft a treatment plan that helps you find relief from this frustrating issue, so you can live your life comfortably once again. To learn more about how the dedicated staff at NYBG Colorectal can help you with your hemorrhoids, reach out to our New Jersey office and set up your consultation today.

Causes and Symptoms of Hemorrhoids

Also known as piles, hemorrhoids can be caused by dietary choices and/or repeated behaviors. They’re most commonly caused by excessive straining during bowel movements, which puts an extra amount of pressure on the blood vessels in the area. Pregnancy can also cause this issue, as well. This added pressure causes the blood vessels around the anus to dilate and swell. Symptoms that commonly accompany this issue include:

  • Bleeding during bowel movements
  • Swelling and irritation
  • Pain and itching
  • Sensitive bumps in the area
  • Mucus leakage

Diagnosing the Problem

In most cases, hemorrhoids can be diagnosed with a simple physical exam. Since the symptoms associated with hemorrhoids can also be caused by other issues, this physical exam is important for certainty in your diagnosis. During your consultation at our New Jersey office, a member of our staff will be able to perform the exam needed to accurately diagnose your issue.

Internal Hemorrhoids

When hemorrhoids are confined to the internal area of the rectum, they are known as internal hemorrhoids. Internal hemorrhoids are typically not painful and can be addressed with treatments like a sclerotherapy injection that will restrict blood flow to the hemorrhoid in question. Ligation can also be used to cut off blood flow to the hemorrhoid, and coagulation therapy uses infrared light to address the issue non-surgically.

External Hemorrhoids

Internal hemorrhoids that are allowed to progress and grow more severe can eventually protrude to a degree that they’re visible outside the anus. External hemorrhoids can be quite painful and uncomfortable, causing issues with sitting and walking for extended periods of time. In these cases, hemorrhoidopexy (also known as hemorrhoid stapling) or transanal hemorrhoid dearterialization are the best options.
