Misunderstandings in treating hemorrhoids (a must-see for hemorrhoid patients)
The incidence of hemorrhoids is 70%-80%. There is a saying among the folks that "ten people have nine hemorrhoids". However, people often have many misunderstandings about this common disease
1. One injection, never relapse
2. Nine hemorrhoids in ten people, no need to treat
This view is wrong. No need for treatment refers to hemorrhoids that do not show symptoms, but once they have symptoms such as bleeding, prolapse, and pain, they are delayed and died, which can only aggravate their own pain and cause harm to health
3. Hemorrhoids can become cancerous
This statement makes some patients with hemorrhoids disturbed. In fact, modern medicine has not yet confirmed the possibility of hemorrhoids becoming cancerous, so there is no need to worry about it. However, the early symptoms of rectal cancer are often similar to that of hemorrhoids, which can sometimes lead to misdiagnosis of rectal cancer and delay the timing of treatment, which should be paid attention to.
4. Hemorrhoid surgery can cause fecal incontinence
Surgery to treat hemorrhoids, if the doctor does not handle it properly, damage to the anal sphincter during the operation can cause fecal incontinence, which is a medical accident. But as long as the method is correct, it will not cause incontinence.
5. Hemorrhoids recur well, and surgery is useless
wrong. Although hemorrhoids is a disease with a high recurrence rate, it does not require surgery. Some hemorrhoids have severe symptoms and are difficult to treat. Clinical cure can only be achieved through surgery, and recurrence can be prevented by paying attention to postoperative health care.
6. Cryotherapy is good, should be the first choice
Modern cryotherapy has indeed opened up a new way for hemorrhoids, and the effect is better. But cryotherapy is only suitable for internal hemorrhoids, and postoperative tissue necrosis sometimes leads to hemorrhage. Therefore, whether to choose cryotherapy should be determined according to the condition, the latest method may not be the best method.
7. Turtle can treat hemorrhoids
For varicose mixed hemorrhoids or hemorrhagic internal hemorrhoids, eating turtles has a certain effect, but for connective tissue external hemorrhoids, eating turtles has no effect.
