Misunderstandings in the treatment of hemorrhoids
Regarding the treatment of hemorrhoids, there is actually a big misunderstanding among the folks. There is a saying in the folks that "ten people and nine hemorrhoids". Some people think that there is no need for treatment. Not only that, people often have many other misunderstandings about the treatment of hemorrhoids. , Hemorrhoid surgery can be
Causes fecal incontinence, recurrence of hemorrhoids, surgery is useless, etc.
1. One injection, never relapse
This is often seen in some irresponsible advertisements, saying that the use of internal hemorrhoids sclerosing agent injection treatment will not recur. This is not the case. Internal hemorrhoids sclerosing injection therapy can sometimes stop the bleeding for half a year, but it is a lie that it will never recur.
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 bleeding, prolapse, pain and other symptoms, they are delayed and died, which can only aggravate their own pain and cause health hazards.
3. Hemorrhoids can become cancerous
This statement makes some patients with hemorrhoids worried. 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 lead to 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.
