Hemorrhoid (Piles) Treatment in Dubai

What Are Symptoms Of Hemorrhoids(Piles)?

Cosmocare is a leading private clinic offer highly expertise treatment for hemorrhoids (Piles) and hernia, besides all other general surgical problems.

Hemorrhoids, also known as piles, affect a sizeable number of the general population. But most of them choose to suffer the symptoms in silence so as to avoid the so-called 'embarrassment' they would face on visiting a doctor or for the fear of a surgery. Postponing treatment for symptomatic hemorrhoids not only helps them grow but timely intervention may help reduce or regress them, usually without a surgery.

Approximately 5 per cent of the general population suffers from hemorrhoids but less than one-third see a doctor for evaluation.
Hemorrhoids can be of two types, internal and external. They present with different set of symptoms. Internal hemorrhoids usually present with discomfort, itching, pain or bleeding. External present with a lump around the anal margin which may be painful. Internal hemorrhoids are graded according to their size, which decide their treatment.

Hemorrhoids symptoms often begin with painless rectal bleeding. This blood can be seen on the toilet tissue and stool and appears bright red. However, rectal bleeding may be a symptom of other anal-rectal disorders. Therefore, it is important to discuss this symptom with your physician when it occurs. Although some bleeding hemorrhoids subside within 1-2 weeks, others progress over time leading to itching, discharge and tissue prolapse (bulging). Hemorrhoids may reach a point where surgical intervention is the only treatment option. We feel it is better to treat hemorrhoids before they get to that point. With IRC your hemorrhoids can be treated during a regular office visit and it requires no preparation, anesthesia or activity restrictions.

Most people suffering from hemorrhoids early on have minimal symptoms, such as mild discomfort or itching, to begin with. This usually lasts for a short time but has a knack of appearing at the most inopportune time, like in the middle of a meeting. It is at this stage that hemorrhoids can be best treated with simple measures and medicines, but is ignored by the patient. Others may pass fresh blood during passage of stools, which hastens an early visit to the doctor. As the stage progresses, the symptoms worsen, and this is when most would seek a consultation but it may be a too late for medical therapy alone.
