Had 1 polyp and it was normal

Thank you for the input.
I am very sorry for your symptoms.
There are a few options to treat hemorrhoid.
In smaller cases, rubber band ligation, sclerotherapy, laser coagulation can be done.
Ligation is quite effective.
In most cases, it works better than sclerotherapy & coagulation.
Recurrence rate is higher with sclerotherapy & coagulation.
In large hemorrhoid, surgical resection or hemorrhoidectomy can be taken.
Stapled hemorrhoidectomy can cause less pain & earlier return to normal activity but hemorrhoidectomy is the most effective treatment.
But from your symptoms, I think your hemorrhoid is mild.
You can use Preparation H.
That is available OTC.
It would relive your discomfort.
I hope this information will be helpful.
If you have any query, please feel free to ask.
Your satisfaction is my goal.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
