Hi i read your query very carefully and would like to say that surgery is the best treatment for hemorrhoids. However before surgery you can try betnovate cream.

What do you mean by surgery because lancing the haemorrhoid is a very easy procedure that I can do at home , what are the risks?

Brief Answer: Please refer to the following answer. Detailed Answer: Hi again. I would like to say that surgery is the best treatment for complicated hemorrhoids, especially in cases with rectal bleeding or hhemorrhoids thrombosis. Otherwise conservative treatment with creams and anti constipation pills is the best alternative. Hope I answered to your question.
