User :   Hi ,

I have a piles problem from quite some time. How do i get it treated. is there some medicine that i need to take.
Doctor :   hi
Doctor :  
ok
Doctor :  
you need to get yourself examined by a physician or a general surgeon
Doctor :  
which will help him/her to determine what the exact problem is
User :   ok.. is there no medicine for it?
Doctor :  
and then treat it
Doctor :  
topical treatment with Pilex ointment works when the piles are external piles
Doctor :  
but if internal then it will not help much
Doctor :  
you will need to get a examination done forst to determine what type it is
Doctor :  
and then get it treated accordingly
Doctor :  
diet changes helps
Doctor :

ok
Doctor :  
then most probably it will not be
Doctor :  
also a rectal examination will reveal if there is any cancerous growth there

so best will be to go for a physical examination by a general surgeon.
