Haemorrhoids - cure?

How do you get rid of haemorrhoids?

Haemorrhoids can be treated medically with creams and suppositories or they can be treated surgically. There are several surgical options that include injection, surgical removal of the haemorrhoids or alternatively a procedure known as an anal stretch. The choice of surgical procedure depends on the size and location of the haemorrhoids. It is possible for haemorrhoids to recur even after surgical removal. Most doctors would particularly emphasise the importance of diet in relation to preventing the onset of haemorrhoids. A high fibre diet helps to prevent them.
