To detect hemorrhoids, your doctor will perform a physical examination, digital rectal analysis, or use a proctoscope to view the anal region. It can take a small tissue sample to analyze it in the laboratory and, if necessary, request a colonoscopy to rule out any disease of the digestive system or the possibility of developing colorectal cancer.
The initial treatment usually consists of changing habits, such as:
- Go to the bathroom as soon as necessary and do not strain while you evacuate.
- Avoid being overweight.
- Avoid sitting for a long time, especially on the toilet.
- Exercise regularly.
- Increase water intake.
- Eat foods rich in fiber.
If it considers it necessary, it will indicate a surgery, the scope of which will depend on your case, the degree of affectation, and progress.
