Q:
How to treat thrombosed hemorrhoid?

A:
Hemorrhoids are enlarged vascular tissue in your lower rectum and anus. Causes of hemorrhoid may include diarrhea, irregular bowel movements, pregnancy, sitting for a long period of time, etc.

The main treatment for a thrombosed hemorrhoid is a procedure called an external thrombectomy, which makes a small cut in the clot and drains it, local anesthesia will be used to prevent you from feeling the pain.

This procedure works best if you have it within three days after hemorrhoid appears, but the clot can come back, and you may still feel the pain after surgery.
