I have had haemerroids for some time now. It is not acute. The doctor I consulted prescribed anti-haemerroid cream which I used for some time and stopped as it did not help.

I still have the problem. Although it is not very painful or discomforting yet. I would want a more long term remedy, before it worsens. What are the best options available in treatment in India?

especially, surgery vs laser treatment? pros and cons.

Thank you.
