Hemorrhoids are very common. In fact, about 1 in 20 Americans have them. While they rarely pose any serious harm to the patient, there are some cases that warrant medical attention. These include:

• Symptoms that are not improving with conservative treatments
In some cases, hemorrhoid symptoms can be relieved with over-the-pain medications, changes in diet, fiber supplements, and warm sitz baths. If your hemorrhoid symptoms aren’t getting better with these, then it’s time to see a specialist.

• There is ongoing pain accompanied by bleeding.
If other symptoms such as pain, bleeding, and swelling seems to be getting worse, seeing a doctor is the best thing to do.

Our specialist at Premier Surgical Hemorrhoid Treatment Center in Knoxville can access your hemorrhoids and rule out other possible causes of these symptoms.
