Most laser hemorrhoid treatments are painless, it is only when we have to do "laser hemorrhoids removal" that you have some mild pain during bowel movement which is estimated to be 30% of conventional surgery pain i.e. 70% less than conventional surgery pain, and which we manage by prescribing pain killers and local numbing creams.
In spite of this common belief, most treated hemorrhoids conditions do not come back, patient can develop new hemorrhoids even after removal of their initial hemorrhoid but this is rare.
Heredity is the main cause, it is in the patient's genes and no one can change this.Constipations and long sitting and even heavy lifting and coughing can make hemorrhoid develop faster, but only in those who have the inherited predisposition.
All hemorrhoid patients applying to our center are first examined in detail and they are informed about their disease and its treatment. Depending on the decision of patients;

Hemorrhoids are swollen veins located around the anus or in the lower rectum. Hemorrhoids can either be internal or external. Internal hemorrhoids develop within the anus or rectum. External hemorrhoids develop outside of the anus. Hemorrhoids are also known as piles.
External hemorrhoids are the most common and most troublesome. Hemorrhoids cause pain, severe itching, and difficulty sitting. Fortunately, they are treatable.
Internal hemorrhoids are far enough inside the rectum that you can't usually see or feel them. They don't generally hurt because you have few pain-sensing nerves there. Bleeding may be the only sign of them.
External hemorrhoids are under the skin around the anus, where there are many more pain-sensing nerves, so they tend to hurt as well as bleed.
Sometimes hemorrhoids prolapse, or get bigger and bulge outside the anal sphincter. Then you may be able to see them as moist bumps that are pinker than the surrounding area. And they're more likely to hurt, often when you poop.
Hemorrhoids are usually caused by increased pressure due to pregnancy, being overweight, or straining during bowel movements. By midlife, hemorrhoids often become an ongoing complaint. By age 50, about half the population has experienced one or more of the classic symptoms, which include rectal pain, itching, bleeding, and possibly prolapse (hemorrhoids that protrude through the anal canal). Although hemorrhoids are rarely dangerous, they can be a recurrent and painful intrusion. Fortunately, there's a lot we can do about them.
Hemorrhoids can be passed on genetically from parent to child, so if your parents had hemorrhoids, you're more likely to get them. Consistent heavy lifting, being obese, or having other constant strain on your body can increase your risk of hemorrhoids.
Standing too much without taking a break to sit can cause hemorrhoids to develop. Consistent anal sexual intercourse and diarrhea can also increase your risk of hemorrhoids.
You're also more likely to develop hemorrhoids if you're pregnant. When the uterus enlarges, it presses on the vein in the colon, causing it to bulge.
