Internal hemorrhoids and external hemorrhoids belong to one type of hemorrhoids. Both of these conditions are very common in clinical practice. So which one is more serious? Generally speaking, internal hemorrhoids are painless but they bleed, and external hemorrhoids have pain without bleeding.
However, many patients have blood in their stools and feel painful symptoms, but it is difficult to distinguish whether they have internal hemorrhoids or external hemorrhoids. At the same time, there are some differences in treatment that make patients uncertain about their treatment methods. Then there are external and internal hemorrhoids. What's the difference?
Does hemorrhoids prolapse after going to bed
Look at whether the hemorrhoids nucleus prolapse after defecation, such as internal hemorrhoids when the fleshy ball protrudes after defecation, external hemorrhoids and hemorrhoids are usually outside the anus.
Mainly because the position of internal hemorrhoids is above the dentate line in the anal canal. The cause of the disease is the soft venous cluster formed by the enlarged varicose and congestion of the venous plexus. Internal hemorrhoids are mainly divided into four stages in clinical practice. Starting from stage II of internal hemorrhoids, patients usually have symptoms of prolapse.
Blood in the stool
Check whether there is blood in the stool in normal times. Blood in the stool is internal hemorrhoids, and patients without blood in the stool are external hemorrhoids.
There is abundant blood in internal hemorrhoids, which can easily cause hemorrhoid mucosal rupture and bleeding, and blood in the stool will appear. Blood in the stool is manifested as blood in the stool, dripping during defecation, and even severe jet-like bleeding.
Is there any pain after going to the toilet?
Whether or not there is pain during stool, such as external hemorrhoids when pain is normal, and internal hemorrhoids when there is no pain.
The location of internal and external hemorrhoids is the somatic nerve of the human body. Patients with external hemorrhoids will also feel pain if they do not defecate when they become inflamed. Patients with internal hemorrhoids usually do not have pain, but the prolapsed hemorrhoids will feel pain when infected.
It is generally believed that internal hemorrhoids are located more inwardly, especially when they come out of the anus. Sometimes there will be blood in the stool, but internal hemorrhoids are generally not painful, but it is difficult to defecate and it is not easy to wipe clean. Severe internal hemorrhoids need to be assisted to advance the nucleus.
The symptoms of external hemorrhoids are also obvious, usually very painful, sometimes swelling, and there are some skin tags around the anus, which are also more obvious characteristics. Both internal and external hemorrhoids require medical treatment as soon as possible. Get treatment early after diagnosis and examination by a doctor.
There is also mixed hemorrhoids, which is more serious, often recurrent infections, symptoms are also many, and the treatment is generally more complicated. In terms of diet, patients with hemorrhoids should be mainly bland, do not eat spicy and irritating food, and do not avoid medical treatment. Either way, the patient must cooperate with the doctor, do not administer the medicine by himself or not treat it at all. After all, this is already very mature in modern treatment technology.
