General Surgery – FAQs
Haemorrhoids are vascular cushions around the lower rectum anal canal. They can present with bleeding, perianal itching or perianal lump.
Treatments can range from dietary and life style modification, clinic based treatments like banding and injection and surgical treatments including haemorrhoidecomy and transanal haemorrhoidal dearterialization (THD).
Haemorrhoids can come back after treatment. The chances of recurrence depend upon the grade of haemorrhoids and the treatment given. Generally the more invasive the treatment the less likely the chance of recurrence.
