Unfortunately, once an internal hemorrhoid starts causing symptoms, it will never fully go away without treatment – but there are plenty of ways to help sooth your symptoms. And with hemorrhoid treatments like the CRH O’Regan System, it’s easier than ever to get rid of them forever.
While external hemorrhoids can cause pain, internal hemorrhoids can often begin to form without you even realizing it. Internal hemorrhoids are actually a natural, normal occurrence in the lower rectum and anus. The tissue, which contains veins and small arteries, acts as a cushion for passing stool causing absolutely no uncomfortable symptoms – they are one of the many ways your body naturally protects itself. As long as there continues to be an absence of symptoms, you’ll live with these helpful hemorrhoids and not even know it.
Internal hemorrhoids that begin to protrude out of the anus, on the other hand, are a problem and should be checked by a qualified physician, these hemorrhoids don’t go away on their own. Though you may experience periods of time without symptoms, these, as well as external, painful hemorrhoids, will likely not go away on their own. In fact, if left untreated, they may get worse over time. You can manage your symptoms and reduce flare-ups with at-home treatments such as topical creams or daily sitz baths. But again, the only way to truly get rid of them is with a doctor-administered treatment, like the CRH O’Regan System. Contact a doctor near you for more information.
