Office Treatment Of Internal Hemorrhoids

A haemorrhoid is an enlarged vein in the lining of the anal canal. All people have internal hemorrhoids. When these hemorrhoids become enlarged, they may cause painless rectal bleeding. Swelling of the haemorrhoid may cause it to prolapse (slide out) during a bowel movement.

  2. After Treatment
  3. Causes For Concern



Sometimes haemorrhoids can be caused by a tumour or inflammation in the bowel. We therefore usually suggest a screening test with a flexible sigmoidoscopy either before or after treatment. Be sure to discuss this with the clinic personel.


Colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer in both men and women. In 2009, over 150,000 cases of colon and rectal cancer will be diagnosed, and more than 52,000 people will die from the disease, accounting for about 10% of all cancer-related deaths. Tremendous strides are made regularly in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of colorectal cancer. Recent advances have been made in the realm of targeted biologic therapies, and clinicians are challenged to stay abreast of the emerging clinical data for colorectal cancer.
