Did you know?

While hemorrhoids are the most common cause of rectal pain and bleeding, it is important to remember not all rectal complaints are due to hemorrhoids. It is impossible to determine the cause of rectal discomfort without a physical examination. If you are experiencing any of the symptoms associated with hemorrhoids, please consult a physician who specializes in the non-operative treatment of hemorrhoids and anal fissures.
