Hemorrhoids, painful. Lack of fiber diet. Suggest?

I am 22 and have experienced hemerrhoids a few times since I was about 20 due to lack of fibre in my diet and I smoke sometimes . Recently though , I had a hemerrhoid present itself outside my anus and now it has gotten bigger than I have ever had one before , the pain has been mild to severe for 2 days , this is the third day and the pain is going down but the hemerrhoid appears to be the same size ( bigger than normal ) I have tried pushing it back in , this brings comfort but it appears to not push the vain back in . Shud I visit the doctor or will this go away ?

Hi thanks for your question.
First degree Haemorrides can go of itself if proper care is taken that to avoid constipation by taking plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables and decreasing protein content of diet. If constipation still persists in spite of all above measures, taking laxative. Second degree haemorrides needs active treatment like banding or getting them removed surgically. Consult a general surgeon who may examine you and may perform proctoscopy/sigmoidoscopy on you to confirm the diagnosis and may decide the procedure accordingly
Hope this answers your question
