At what point do hemorrhoids need treatment? What are the treatment options?

Hemorrhoids are very common and most of the time can be treated by lifestyle modification. For mild hemorrhoids diet changes and creams or ointments may help to relieve symptoms. Do not use for more than a week unless your doctor recommends that you do so. I prefer rubber band ligation in the office and surgery only if my patients’ symptoms fail to improve.
