Doctor :   Ok
Doctor :   Let me explain to you.
Doctor :   Hemorrhoids are grouped as 4 types based on the severity of the condition.
Doctor :   Since your sister reports that the mass is present even at rest, the specific treatment for this type of hemorrhoids is surgical correction.

Doctor :   In the mean time, I shall suggest a few measures to help you.
Doctor :   1. Hot water sit baths three times a day.
