Brief Answer: Ensure high water and fiber intake. Detailed Answer: Hi Welcome to Healthcare-Magic Greetings of the day Dear Mr XXXXXXX As you have been examined by doctor and diagnosis confirmed by doctor to be due to Hemorrhoids, there appears to be no cause for concern. Also as you are only 38 years of age, it's definitely not common age for colonic cancer. Management of Hemorrhoids is usually non operative medical management. It involves consumption of good quantity of water and high fiber diet. Restricting food will further worsen the problem by causing constipation. Rest be assured there is no cause for concern. Take care Best Regards Dr Deepak Kishore MBBS, MS, MCH Consultant Surgeon

Resume your normal intake, two servings of vegetable salad a day will be helpful. Take care Regards Deepak
