If you have piles or fissures, it is time to seek piles and fissures treatment . You should seek medical treatment if you have rectal bleeding. A number of problems can cause rectal bleeding, including hemorrhoids, Crohn’s disease, colitis, colon polyps and colorectal cancer. It is essential to get an accurate diagnosis.
In order to know if you have piles, your doctor will examine the anal area. Your doctor can also insert a lubricated gloved finger, a proctoscope or an anoscope into the rectum. Additional procedures may be required to identify internal hemorrhoids or rule out other conditions that can cause anal bleeding.
In order to see further into the anal canal, a doctor can use sigmoidoscopy. The physician can also use colonoscopy to view the whole colon. For both of these procedures, a doctor may insert a flexible and lighted viewing tube into the rectum. A barium X-ray can also be used to view the entire interior of the colon. Before the X-ray of the lower gastrointestinal tract is taken, a barium enema is performed.
The goal of treating anal fissures is breaking the cycle of spasm of the anal sphincter and the repeated tearing of the anoderm. Due to advancements in medical sciences, surgery is not necessary when it comes to treating piles. Even though surgery treats the problems quickly, high relapse rates, recuperation time and costs are involved. Medical facilities like the ClinTech Medical Center use modern non-surgical procedures to treat piles and fissures. These non-surgical procedures have helped to minimize the fear and the severity of the ailment.
In acute fissures, non-surgical fissure treatment is successful in most patients. Of acute fissures, eighty to ninety percent will heal with conservative measures when compared to recurrent fissures, which show a forty percent rate of healing. Initial treatment involves following a high fiber diet and softening the stool with methylcellulose or psyllium preparations.
Home remedies include avoiding foods that may not be digested well, such as tortilla chips, popcorn, and nuts, the increase of liquid intake and sitz baths. Sitz baths are encouraged, especially after bowel movements to relax the spasm, to enhance blood flow to the anus and to clean the anus without having to rub and irritated anoderm.
Topical steroids and anesthetics can also be used to treat fissures. In most cases, a minute amount of the steroid is amalgamated in the anesthetic cream in order to minimize inflammation. Steroids should only be used for a period of two weeks or less because longer use can cause the anoderm to thin and it can get affected by trauma. Oral medicines are also effective in relaxing the internal sphincter smooth muscle. They aid healing.
Ointments containing the relaxant nitroglycerin are also effective in treating anal fissures. Nitroglycerin causes relaxation of the internal anal fissure and reduces the anal resting pressure. After the application of an ointment containing nitroglycerin to the anal canal, it diffuses across the anoderm and causes the internal fixture to relax. This minimizes pressure on the anal canal. Ointments that contain calcium channel blocking drugs are also effective in the treatment of anal fissures.
