During our clinical diagnosis and treatment, patients with hemorrhoids often ask whether hemorrhoids become cancerous. In fact, the problem is very simple. Hemorrhoids themselves are not cancerous. No matter at home or abroad, people have not found that hemorrhoids can become cancerous. Patients with hemorrhoids need not worry about it. However, patients with hemorrhoids can be accompanied by colorectal cancer, which should arouse everyone's vigilance and attention.
In clinical practice, we often encounter such a situation, that is, patients have both hemorrhoids, rectal cancer, colon cancer or anal cancer. In the past, patients were often treated for hemorrhoids, and only rectal cancer was discovered later. Or the presence of other cancers. Therefore, many people think that hemorrhoids can become cancerous. This view is wrong and unfounded.
It is worth mentioning that when patients have bleeding from "hemorrhoids", they must be alert to whether they must be hemorrhoids and whether they are accompanied by other diseases, especially anal cancer and rectal cancer. Therefore, once stool bleeding occurs, you must go to the hospital to confirm whether it is hemorrhoids, and also exclude the existence of cancer. In the early stage of anorectal cancer, it is difficult to identify it only by clinical symptoms. To arouse the attention of patients and doctors, sometimes electronic colonoscopy is necessary.
