Do Hemorrhoids Heal Themselves?
Do hemorrhoids heal themselves? I have received that question many times over the past couple years. Hemorrhoids is a nuisance affecting many people, especially those who are now fifty years or more. It occurs due to the inflammation and swelling of tissues and veins in the anal region. The common symptoms observed include rectal bleeding, itching, and pain. The condition causes great discomfort and the person may find sitting down extremely difficult. At times, hemorrhoids heal themselves, at others they worsen. It is better not to wait and see if the condition gets better on its own or not and consult a physician. Procrastination may result in severe consequences such as excessive bleeding or thrombosis. Early diagnosis also provides you the opportunity to go for a natural treatment such as HemClear.
Many people want to know if it is necessary to treat hemorrhoids and if there is a possibility that the condition will go away on its own, do hemorrhoids heal themselves? The answer is that it better to treat hemorrhoids yourself. The problem only solves itself when the condition is mild. However, just because there is the slight possibility of not requiring any medical treatment, you should not increase the risk of worsening the condition by delaying the treatment.
The nature of every person’s hemorrhoids is different from the other. You should not make rash decisions (or make none) on the basis of others experience.
It is vital to remember that the first symptom of hemorrhoids is rectal bleeding and that hemorrhoids do not heal themselves. If you simply assume that you have hemorrhoids and do not consult a physician, you may face severe consequences in the future. Rectal bleeding is not caused by hemorrhoids only. It may be caused by a host of other diseases such as colon cancer, anal cancer, polyps, Crohn’s disease, diverticulosis, infectious colitis, fissures, and diarrhea. You don’t need to get alarmed. What you need to do is to consult a physician, get a diagnosis, and treat you hemorrhoids.
Self medication without consulting a doctor first may aggravate the condition. Special care needs to be taken in administration of any drug for treatment of hemorrhoids. You need to stay vigilant and make an extra effort to prevent any complications in the future. If left untreated, hemorrhoids may start bleeding and get larger. You are also at the risk of developing thrombosis which is caused by blood clotting in the external hemorrhoids. This can be extremely painful and poses potential risks. A thrombosed hemorrhoid may get infected or torn.
You should also take note if you remain constipated for long period of time after developing piles. As constipation is a major cause of hemorrhoids, it means that if this problem is showing no chances of resolving itself, the chances of your hemorrhoids going away on their own are nil. You need to seek medical advice at this stage.
It is important to bear in mind that the severity of the condition and the symptoms vary from person to person. Some people actually never realize that they have hemorrhoids because they never experience any bleeding or any other symptom. In their case, the hemorrhoids heal themselves. On the other hand, there are people who have a horrifying experience. They suffer extreme pain and discomfort and rectal bleeding. Such people should not wait for the problem to resolve itself but to treat the hemorrhoids as soon as possible. Conventional medication is a fast and effective way to treat hemorrhoids but they also pose some side effects. For a safer mode of treatment, you should consider alternative treatments made with natural ingredients. The best course of action is to prevent hemorrhoids by adopting a healthy lifestyle and taking a healthy diet. After all, prevention is better than cure.
