Learn about hemorrhoids, the symptoms and a simple painless treatment called “Hemorrhoid Banding”

Think only certain types of people get hemorrhoids? They are an incredibly common problem. While most people get hemorrhoids after age 30, the truth is, they’re common amongst all kinds of people from all kinds of backgrounds—and you shouldn’t feel embarrassed or upset about telling a doctor if you think you have them. Yet talking to a doctor about them can seem embarrassing and stressful. If you have hemorrhoid symptoms, don’t suffer in silence. The sooner you get diagnosed and treated, the better your life and your health will be – and the less likely you are to have complications or require surgery.

Your treatment shouldn’t wait! Do you really need to treat your hemorrhoids? The answer is YES.

Left untreated, hemorrhoids often get worse over time – and therefore harder to treat. This means that a hemorrhoid that could easily be “banded” today could eventually require surgery.


The procedure places a small rubber band around the base of one hemorrhoid in each session. The rubber band cuts off the blood supply to the hemorrhoid and the band may fall off as soon as 48 hours after the banding.

There are usually 3 banding sessions required at 2 week intervals. A final check-up may be scheduled 4 – 6 weeks after the 3rd banding session.

The procedure should have been relatively painless since the banding of the area involved does not have nerve endings and there is no pain sensation.

Anatomy of Hemorrhoids

Rubber Band Ligation

Hemorrhoids are cushions of swollen tissue and blood vessels in the lower rectum which begin to bulge down through the anus causing:

  • Itching
  • Bleeding
  • Swelling
  • Prolapsed (hemorrhoids come out during a bowel movement)

Hemorrhoids result from an increase in pressure in the veins of the rectum, typically from too much straining. Common causes of hemorrhoids include:

  • Constipation
  • Diet
  • Pregnancy and childbirth
  • Obesity
  • Heavy lifting
  • Long periods of sitting
  • Diarrhea

Internal hemorrhoids

Because they are inside the lower rectum, internal hemorrhoids often can’t be seen and are typically painless. Often, the only symptoms you may notice are itching, small amounts of bright red blood (on your toilet paper or inside the toilet bowl), or a feeling of fullness following a bowel movement.

However, internal hemorrhoids can also push through the anal opening. These are known as prolapsing hemorrhoids. Sometimes these hemorrhoids reduce (go back inside) spontaneously, and other times they must be manually reduced (pushed back in). In the vast majority of cases, treating the internal hemorrhoids will relieve the external symptoms.

External hemorrhoids

External hemorrhoids often occur as bulges or lumps around the anus. Because of the sensitive nerve fibers in this area, these abnormal vessels are often painful, especially when sitting. They also may bleed and itch. Should blood pool in an external hemorrhoid, a blood clot referred to as a thrombosed hemorrhoid may develop and cause severe pain.

Around 90% of patients who complain about external issues are actually helped by hemorrhoidal banding of their internal hemorrhoids.

Too often, hemorrhoid sufferers spend endless time and money on home remedies such as a creams, suppositories and warm baths, getting nothing but temporary relief. Hemorrhoids can also get progressively worse over time.

Common Hemorrhoid Symptoms

  • Prolapse
    • In some instances, the hemorrhoids will prolapse (come down through the anal canal), requiring the sufferer to push the tissue back in place, while in others the prolapsed tissue will reduce on its own.
  • Blood
    • If you notice a small amount of blood on toilet paper after a bowel movement, or see blood present in your stool, you might be seeing the signs of hemorrhoids. This blood will typically be bright red in color.
  • Rectal itching
    • An itchy feeling either on the rectum or in the interior of the rectum is one of the most common and irritating hemorrhoid symptoms. In addition to being bothersome, vigorous scratching of the afflicted area can lead to infections if the skin is broken.
  • Incomplete bowel movements
    • Many hemorrhoids sufferers experience what can be described as an incomplete bowel movement, which means they feel like the movement is not fully completed. Attempting to have another bowel movement without success can make hemorrhoids worse due to increased straining. This is a frequent side effect of hemorrhoids, and can lead to further health issues.
  • Other diagnoses
    • Some of these hemorrhoid symptoms can also be a sign of more serious gastrointestinal issues, such as colorectal cancer, colon cancer, irritable bowel syndrome and others.
