Hello doctor,

I am getting hemorrhoids often. Even this month, I got hemorrhoids twice. I would like to know, why is it so often for me? I do eat fruits every day, and I do not have constipation. I am 20 years old, and my weight is 59 kg. Thank you.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Sorry to hear your problem. The first thing is that I need to know a few more details about your problem.

  • Are you getting hemorrhoids or something else? Because bleeding while passing stools are not due to hemorrhoids alone.
  • And suppose, if you got hemorrhoids, then it will not disappear without any medication.
  • Do you have pain while passing stools? If it is so, then probably you have got fissure-in-ano, which is an ulcer in the anal canal.
  • It will appear again and again without proper treatment. People often confuse it with hemorrhoids.
  • It is due to constipation (passing hard stools and less frequent stools). You may also get it after having a very spice diet, trauma and stress.
  • You need to get a surgeon's appointment and opinion. He will examine your anal canal and will give you a proper picture.

The Probable causes:

Spicy food and stress.

Investigations to be done:

Anal examination by a general surgeon.

Probable diagnosis:

Fissure-in-ano.

Treatment plan:

1. Sitz bath.
2. Laxatives.

Regarding follow up:
