Hemroids are one of the most common ailments known in both men and women, but many suffer in silence rather than discuss hemroids treatment with their doctor.
The American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons report that 50% of all Americans will have hemroids in their lifetime. One reason people do not talk about hemroids problems with their doctor is because they anticipate a painful, traditional hemroids surgery.
A minimally invasive surgical approach recently introduced in the United States, called Procedure for Prolapse and Hemroids (PPH), may help patients recover from hemroids surgery faster with less pain when compared to conventional hemroidsectomy procedures. Hemroids Treatment Procedure
What is hemroids?
Each of us has veins within the Excretory Orifice that tend to stretch under pressure, somewhat like varicose veins in the legs. Hemroids are enlarged veins in the Excretory Orifice or lower rectum. Hemroids can affect men and women alike. Pregnant women often develop hemroids, because of the strain from carrying the baby and from giving birth. Men are more likely than women to suffer from hemroids that require professional medical treatment. Obesity, straining during bowel movements, sitting too long on the toilet, or standing or lifting too much can make hemroids worse. Constipation is oftentimes the main cause of hemroids.
