How to get rid of haemorrhoids?

Causes

Causes of Haemorrhoids

The root cause of developing piles is associated with an increase in pressure around your anus. Whilst everyone could be prone to developing haemorrhoids, it’s not entirely clear why some do and some don’t. There are thought to be around 8 million sufferers in the UK alone, so more common than you might have thought.

Symptoms

Anal Bleeding

Bleeding from your bottom is one of the most common haemorrhoid symptoms. If this sounds familiar, you could have piles.

Itching

Intimate itching is one of the first signs of haemorrhoids. It’s annoying and embarrassing but easily relieved.

Pain

From uncomfortable soreness to not being able to sit down properly, pain is another one of the signs of haemorrhoids.

Treatments

Banding

Rubber band ligation, also called banding, involves the application of a tight elastic band around the base of the haemorrhoid which cuts off the blood supply and results in the haemorrhoid dropping off after typically 10-14 days.

Surgical removal

Haemorrhoid surgery in the UK is an expanding field with increasing diversity. If other treatments haven’t worked or your haemorrhoids are not suitable for non-surgical procedures, then surgery for haemorrhoids may be an option. There are a number of procedures available, but the main ones are set out below.

Sclerotherapy treatment

In simple terms, sclerotherapy is the injection of a chemical solution into the area around the haemorrhoid resulting in a scarring reaction which makes the haemorrhoid gradually shrink or shrivel up over time. It is typically reserved for grades 1 and 2 internal haemorrhoids.

Haemorrhoid Cures

We understand the desire for orally taken “piles” tablets that instantly cure your haemorrhoids. Haemorrhoids are considered an awkward subject to talk about / discuss with anyone, and so sufferers naturally gravitate towards more discreet treatment options.

Relieving Pain

From time to time haemorrhoid sufferers will experience a flare up that can be quite painful. This can be down to a number of factors such as constipation, your piles becoming prolapsed, even using a coarse toilet paper when wiping your bottom can cause small abrasions that will become painful.

The different types of haemorrhoids

Internal haemorrhoids

Internal haemorrhoids are actually swollen veins and their support tissues, situated in the lower part of your rectum. Sometimes the blood vessels and associated tissues become weak and stretch so thin that they bulge and become irritated.

External haemorrhoids

External haemorrhoids are different from internal haemorrhoids in two important ways: the first and most obvious difference is where they are located – external haemorrhoids, as the name suggests, are on the outside of your anus. Internal haemorrhoids are on the inside.

Thrombosed haemorrhoids

A thrombosed haemorrhoid, is the medical term for a haemorrhoid that has become swollen due to a small blood clot within the haemorrhoid. The word ‘thrombosis’ means clotting.

eXroid COVID-19 Update

Elective treatments suspended for the next 3 weeks
Following the Prime Minister’s national address at 20:30 on Monday 23rd March, it is imperative that we do our utmost to restrict the spread of COVID-19 and safeguard our patients and their communities, our staff and our clinics. Whilst we will always aim to do all we can to help and bring relief to our patients, we are bound by the greater cause to limit this highly infectious virus. We are therefore, as of now, re-scheduling all of our clinics and appointments to over 3 weeks into the future in line with the government guidance.

We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience and we will speak to everyone of our booked patients individually and do all we can to provide support.

We do, however, understand that there are some extreme cases and where patients feel there is an extreme detriment to their quality of life and / or they are suffering excessive bleeding, we will continue to provide our service on an emergency basis, where possible. This will be preceded by a triage call with myself initially, to ascertain what the issues are and to try to help remotely with a prescription, if possible, in the short term. If you have any concerns please contact us on 0800 999 3777.

We will continue to keep all of our patients directly informed and fully intend to treat everyone as planned, once the current restrictions have been lifted, presently scheduled for after the next three weeks.

The latest information is available at: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-stay-at-home-guidance

Again, if there are any questions or support we can offer, our team will remain working and available to support.

Kind Regards,

Dr Mark J. Hudson-Peacock,
Chairman and Medical Director
