What You Should Know About Hemorrhoids
Probably, you already have experienced constipation. Did you know that more than 80% of people may suffer from hemorrhoid symptoms but goes unnoticed according to medical data? You may also have experienced bleeding even in small amount. Despite this, you do not visit your doctors because you do not feel any pain at all.
Hemorrhoids Are Somewhat an Embarrassing Problem
Women who have hemorrhoids may try to hide it even from their families. Because of it, authorities claim that the true number of people affected from hemorrhoids is shrouded.
However, the number of patients who go for surgical operations are dramatically increasing. The operation is usually done in an outpatient basis thanks to modern medical technology. Patients can go home just after a few hours in the hospitals. Isn't that great?
During the past, people thought that hemorrhoids can be treated simply by medicine or by doing a cleansing in the area. But today, hemorrhoids are no longer the same as what our old folks experienced and thought.
Have You Seen Your Own Anus?
It is very true that most people have never seen their own anus. Is it because this is somewhat considered a “shameful act” or a “disgraceful deed”, especially among young people?
We have received some information that many young women have tried to hide the bleeding for over 5 to 10 years because of shame. But they have decided to approach their physicians when the bleeding does not stop. The reason why most patients did not approach their physicians in the first place was because they did not feel any pain in the beginning at all.
Most of them only go to hospitals if the blotch has become bigger, became disturbing, bled severely, or if it gives pain.
Hemorrhoid Usually Affects Only Human
Do you know why you have never heard of hemorrhoids that occur in animals? It is because the majority of animals including apes are on all fours. Only humans stand and walk with two feet. Therefore, blood in the body has difficulties in circulating and travelling back to the heart. In other words, it is blood congestion that leads to hemorrhoid.
To Prevent Hemorrhoid...
- Avoid having constipation.
- Do not push too hard and for too long when you sit on the toilet. Instead, go to toilet several times if the defecation is hard, rather than wasting your time in the toilet.
- Control your eating habit. It is good to drink cold water when you wake up in the morning. Eat in the morning. This is very important.
Whatever it is, if you feel something, we recommend you to visit your physician before it is too late.
