What's the treatment for prolapsed hemorrhoid?

User

My dad admitted to have a prolapsed hemorrhoid. He didn't want to tell me about how uncomfortable it is because he's scared of the treatment. What treatment will he need?

Answers

Most prolapsed hemorrhoids spontaneously reduce or can be encouraged to reduce through self-care. This includes the use of ice packs, sitz baths, and over-the-counter remedies. It is important to avoid straining during bowel movements. You should also work to keep your stools soft by eating foods high in fiber, taking a stool softener or fiber supplement, and drinking water and nonalcoholic liquids. For cases in which hemorrhoids do not spontaneously reduce, or when they tend to recur frequently, there are a variety of medical treatments for prolapsed hemorrhoids. Your doctor will determine which treatment is best for you based on your history and severity of symptoms. Some of these options are relatively non-invasive, including the most common non-operative treatment of rubber band ligation. There are other less invasive, non-surgical options available as well. In addition, there are several surgical options that might be recommended due to the severity of your symptoms.

He needs to see a doctor. Depending on how bad it is, sometimes it can be treated with topicals or by banding it. More difficult ones may need a Hemorrhoidectomy.

A Doctor's visit would be in order. Your father would need a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication, as this is an inflamed blood vessel.

Need to take him to see his doctor. I am not qualified to make these type of decisions. I don't want to be responsible for telling someone something that could be completely wrong. That is what doctors get paid big bucks for. Let them inquire of their physician.

Medical treatment of hemorrhoids is aimed at relieving symptoms and may include: Sitting in plain, warm water in the tub several times a day Ice packs to reduce swelling Application of hemorrhoidal creams or suppositories Increasing fiber and fluids to soften stools

This need to be addressed. treatment is typically handled surgically because of the condition and the nature of its symptoms. Next time when this is taken care of he must alway get in the shower and run warm water on his anus.keep clean. And after bowel movement. Wash,,,I wish the best for him.

Soft cushion. Tucks pads. Maybe a cream. Maybe a laxative if he/she has any constipation. Surgery may be needed in the future if should start bleeding severely.

The least invasive treatment would be soaking in a warm bath. You can also use some over the counter medicine that treats this issue. The most common treatment is a hemorroidectomy. It is the excision of the hemorrhoid.

injections,An internal hemorrhoid can be injected with a solution which creates a scar and closes off the hemorrhoid. also banding. prolapsed hemorrhoids can offten be removed using rubber-band ligation.. another one you can us is coagulation or cauterization.. last option is surgery.
