Hemorrhoids: hemorrhoidal thrombosis

Sometimes dilated hemorrhoids and blood stagnation cause thrombosis, that is, a blood clot forms in the hemorrhoidal bundle. The solution differs according to the location of this clot. The doctor or surgeon may make a small incision in case of thrombosis on the external hemorrhoid (under local anesthesia).

A hemorrhoidal thrombosis is very painful, it lasts several days; the thrombus can evacuate spontaneously bleeding, it will be formed ulceration that will heal and will sometimes be a marisk (fold of skin).

Rarely, hemorrhoidal disease is complicated by an infection or a major bleeding, nevertheless slight but repetitive bleeding can be responsible for the appearance of anemia (decrease of red blood cells in the blood).

When an external hemorrhoid is thrombosed and painful, it is possible to make a small excision and evacuate the thrombus, the pain stops immediately. This small procedure can be done in consultation after a local anesthesia.
