Hemorrhoids are caused by pressure in the veins surrounding the anus. More than 70 percent of our patients are diagnosed with hemorrhoids at one time or another. Pressure can result because of many factors, including:
- Strained coughing
- Prolonged sitting
- Heavy lifting
A number of conditions, including infection, cancer, and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), mimic hemorrhoids. Our advanced diagnostic tools can identify the precise cause of your symptoms. We offer a range of treatments to provide relief and reduce or eliminate hemorrhoids.
