Hemorrhoids and Hernia Overview

Particularly, swollen and inflamed veins in the rectum and anus as hemorrhoids or piles. Generally, they can be internal (inside the rectum) or external (under the skin around the anus). Additionally, it causes discomfort, pain, itching, and bleeding, particularly during bowel movements. Common causes include straining during bowel movements, chronic constipation or diarrhea, pregnancy, and obesity. To begin with, treatment options for hemorrhoids include lifestyle modifications, over-the-counter medications, topical treatments, and in severe cases, surgical procedures.

On the other hand, a hernia occurs when an organ or tissue protrudes through a weak spot. In short, the tear in the muscle wall that surrounds it. As a rule, hernias can develop in the abdomen. Including ventral hernia, umbilical hernia, groin (inguinal hernia), and upper thigh (femoral hernia). Common symptoms include a bulge or lump in the affected area, discomfort, or pain, especially when lifting or straining. One important, risk factors include obesity, heavy lifting, chronic coughing or straining, pregnancy, and previous abdominal surgery. In brief, treatment for hernias typically involves surgery. To repair the muscle weakness and close the opening in the muscle wall.

Difference Between Hemorrhoids Treatment and Hernia Repair Procedure

When it comes to gastrointestinal health, it’s equally important to distinguish and understand the difference between Hernia and Hemorrhoids. Both tend to cause discomfort, but they are distinct.

  • Location
    • Primarily, hemorrhoids affect the veins in the rectum and anus. While hernias involve the protrusion of organs or tissues through a weakness in the muscle wall. Particularly in the abdomen or groin.

  • Symptoms
    • Hemorrhoids commonly cause itching, pain, and bleeding during bowel movements. Whereas hernias often present as a visible bulge or lump in the affected area. Along with discomfort or pain, particularly when straining.

  • Causes
    • Factors such as chronic constipation, pregnancy, and obesity often cause hemorrhoids. On the other hand, hernias can develop due to muscle weakness from factors like heavy lifting, chronic coughing, or pregnancy.

Types of Hemorrhoids

In summary, we treat a range of internal and external hemorrhoids. To illustrate, hemorrhoids treatment are classified into two main types based on their location and severity:

Internal Hemorrhoids

Internal hemorrhoids develop inside the rectum. Whereas, there are fewer pain-sensing nerves, making them less likely to cause pain. Additionally, these hemorrhoids may protrude or prolapse through the anus. During bowel movements, leading to discomfort, bleeding, and irritation.

External Hemorrhoids

External hemorrhoids develop under the skin around the anus. Oftenly, more painful and noticeable than internal hemorrhoids. Furthermore, these hemorrhoids can form blood clots (thrombosis). Eventually, leading to severe pain, itching, discomfort, swelling, and irritation in the effected area.

Hemorrhoids Causes and Risk Factors

Childbirth, Heavy Lifting, or Straining during Bowel Movements.
Pregnancy, Infections, Opioids Medication or Heavy Alcohol Consumption.
Aging, Obesity, Genetics, Diarrhea, Constipation, Inactive Lifestyle, Low-Fiber Diet, Prolonged Sitting or Standing.

Complications of Hemorrhoids if Left Untreated

Unquestionably, hemorrhoids if left untreated. Some medical conditions can lead to serious complications. However, that may be challenging to manage. Early diagnosis and proper treatment help manage it further advancing to severe stages. 

Hemorrhoids Signs, Symptoms and Complications




Hemorrhoids Available Treatments

Actually, surgeons can often manage hemorrhoids effectively with various treatment approaches. Such as surgical and non-surgical options. The treatment depends on the severity of symptoms, the type of hemorrhoids, and the patient’s overall health. To sum up, here are the common treatment options:

Topical Medications

Over-the-counter creams, or ointments containing hydrocortisone, witch hazel, or numbing agents. After all, they can relieve itching, pain, and inflammation. Effective providing temporary relief.

Hemorrhoidopexy (Stapled)

The procedure involves using a special stapling device to remove excess tissue. Eventually, reposition hemorrhoids back into their normal position. A minimally invasive alternative to traditional hemorrhoidectomy.


Injection of a chemical solution into internal hemorrhoids. Eventually shrink them by causing scarring and reducing blood flow. To sum up, effective for treating smaller internal hemorrhoids.

Hemorrhoid Banding/Ligation

The procedure involves placing a small rubber band at the base of the hemorrhoids. Finally, it cut off blood flow, causing them to shrink. Minimally invasive, outpatient procedure for treating internal hemorrhoids.


The surgical procedure removes, particularly, large and severe symptomatic internal or external hemorrhoids. In addition to this, provides long-term relief. But may require a longer recovery time. 

LHP® Laser Hemorrhoidoplasty

The laser procedure shrink hemorrhoidal tissue, reducing symptoms. Minimally invasive, outpatient procedure with reduced postoperative pain and faster recovery compared to traditional surgeries.

Non-Surgical Hemorrhoids Treatment

Firstly, LHP® treats hemorrhoids without traditional procedure risks or prolonged recovery. Secondly, the operative time is much shorter than surgical hemorrhoid treatment. Lastly, the procedure does not involve cutting or removing any tissue. The laser treatment cuts off the blood supply so hemorrhoids can no longer protrude.
