Hemorrhoidal disease is not uncommon
Don't only go to the doctor when it's bleeding!
Symptoms such as anal weeping, itching and stool smearing can already be signs of hemorrhoid disease. In most cases, self-treatment does not lead to a permanent improvement. The painful symptoms may disappear spontaneously, but they return after a short time. The problem is not solved.
If you feel an anal protrusion, it is high time to see a proctologist. He will determine whether it is a hemorrhoidal disorder at all. If this is the case, he will determine the degree of the disease. Hemorrhoids are divided into 4 degrees.
