– Itching: This embarrassing urge to scratch the anus can also be a feature of hemorrhoids.

– Discharge: Mucus discharge is a frequent feature of prolapsed protruding hemorrhoids.

– Anemia: This could be low level of blood in the body caused by persistent profuse bleeding from a hemorrhoid swelling.

– Prolapse: This is protrusion of the hemorrhoid through the anus. Initially the protrusion reduces itself, but later it has to be replaced manually. If left untreated the hemorrhoid will become permanently prolapsed.

– Anal swellings: The external hemorrhoids occurring outside the anus can present as soft masses around the anus that are covered with normal skin.

Some dangerous conditions can mirror the symptoms of hemroids, so it is important to get a doctor’s diagnosis. These can include colon cancer, polyps, rectal cancer, Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis which are inflammatory bowel diseases. Anal infections and anal tears can be additional disorders that can cause patients trouble. These diseases can mirror hemorrhoid symptoms so further examination is required. {To know more about hemorrhoids download your free copy of a hemorrhoid book by clicking on the links in the last paragraph below}

Usually when you go to the doctor for further examination, the doctor will first of all perform a digital examination on you and the he/she will use an instrument called a proctoscope to properly see the inside of your lower rectum and anal canal. Also the doctor should proceed to visualize the lower part of your colon {your intestine} and the upper part of your rectum with the use of another instrument called a sigmoidoscope to rule out the possibility of another disease of the rectum and lower colon.

I don’t think a proctoscopy is anyone’s idea of fun, yet it is a necessary exam to make sure you stay healthy. Plus, it is a safe and easy process. If colon disease runs in your family then you need to be extra caution, you should have a proctoscopy at age 40. Everyone else can wait another ten years. After you have a yearly exam, you will need to be retested only every five to ten years if your tests are negative for any disease or growth.
