If you are looking for help treating your hemorrhoids, visiting a special hemorrhoid treatment clinic is highly recommended. They will be able to offer you a wider variety of treatment solutions that will address the entire issue and help you achieve relief in much less time. Although any doctor is capable of treating hemorrhoids, in many cases, visiting a specialty clinic may be the best solution for your needs.
When visiting a hemorrhoid treatment clinic, you will find that there are many options for treating this condition. While most people rely on topical ointments to treat the symptoms of a hemorrhoid, this does not get to the root of the problem. Although they can be very helpful with the symptoms, they are not actually removing the hemorrhoid. If you are experiencing frequent flare-ups, visiting one of these clinics can help address and solve the problem.
These hemorrhoid treatment clinics specialize in a variety of techniques that have been proven to be very effective in the treatment of hemorrhoids. From non-invasive procedures to actual surgical interventions, there are many different avenues that are now available to patients. Most hemorrhoid treatment clinics will recommend a variety of different treatments that will work together to bring relief.
For example, one of the most frequently used measures involves the placement of a band across the vessels involved in a specific hemorrhoid (Rubber Band Ligation). This cuts off the blood supply to the hemorrhoid, which will shrink and eventually fall off. This procedure is virtually painless, and is quite effective in the treatment of the vast majority of cases.
While you are visiting a hemorrhoid treatment clinic, you may also want to consider getting a colon cancer screening (colonoscopy). The American Cancer Society recommends that all adults over the age of 50 receive a study at least every ten years. These studies are very beneficial and help you maintain good colon health. Colon cancer is quite common and progresses very slowly. This means that it can go undetected for many years. A colonoscopy can help your doctor determine whether or not you may have a problem and you will be able to get effective treatment. Early detection has already saved thousands of lives by early detection, or detection and removal of precancerous growths.
