Treatment & Procedures

Treatment options for hemorrhoids vary, and include both at home and outpatient options. Patients can try a warm bath at home, creams or other medicines. Patients with large hemorrhoids or ones that have not responded to other treatments may need surgery.

Even if a patient chooses to treat hemorrhoids at home, they should see a doctor if there is any rectal bleeding to rule out a more serious condition like colorectal cancer.
