Hemorrhoids is a disease that occurs as a result of swelling of the veins around the anus and in the rectum. Hemorrhoids are divided into internal and external. Those on the outside of the anus are called external hemorrhoids, and those on the inside are called internal hemorrhoids. External hemorrhoids are more common. Hemorrhoids are manifested by internal swelling, bleeding and may protrude out. This protrusion may dissappear on its own or it can be pushed inwards with manual force. For some, this may not be the case.
Diagnosis is made by physical examination after taking the patient's history. If necessary, it is possible to diagnose with the help of colonoscopy.
Various methods are used in the treatment of hemorrhoids. First of all, ensuring fluid intake, diet with plenty of fiber rich foods, sitting baths and creams. If there is no improvement with these methods, surgical intervention may be considered. Most of the surgical interventions are aimed at removing the hemorrhoid. However, these can also cause severe pain.
Laser technology used in the treatment of hemorrhoids is a painless treatment method applied on the outpatient basis. Laser hemorrhoid treatment is the process of burning the hemorrhoid tissue with laser through a very small hole. The most important advantage of this procedure is that the hemorrhoid tissue is not removed.
