Hello and welcome to Health Care Magic
is a condition in which any part of the large intestine forms out pouchings. These outpouchings are formed due to differential pressure created in the intestinal lumen during passage of digested material.
Diverticulosis can remain asymptomatic but once infected they become symptomatic, cause pain or bleeding.
Hemorrhoids are distended veins in the rectal and/ or anal region. These veins are formed due to stasis of blood in veins. The cause of stasis of blood in veins is due to pressure abnormalities in the venous system at local site or at distant site.
Hemorrhoids can also become infected and bleed.
There are various means to treat diverticulosis and hemorrhoids.
The modality most appropriate for you will be decided by the examining gastrosurgeon.
Thanks and take care
