Thrombosed External Hemorrhoids With Images

We have defined before that hemorrhoids have two main types or kinds, internal hemorrhoids which occurs inside the anal canal, and the external hemorrhoids which can be found outside or around the anus.

What are External Thrombosed  Hemorrhoids?


Thrombosed external hemorrhoids are those hemorrhoids you can see or find outside the anus or the anal open. This case can be found because the blood supply is cut off, this is called strangulating. The external thrombosed hemorrhoids are usually painful.

What is The External Thrombosed Surgery?


When you have the thrombosed external hemorrhoids, you may use medical treatments like cortisone creams, but these kinds of treatment can take many weeks to work, and paying attention to the pain that cannot wait that long, then the surgery is usually required.

Thrombosed External Hemorrhoids Natural Treatment:

Anyway, and before talking about thrombosed external hemorrhoids surgeries, let us take a look at the best ways of treating this problem without needing for the surgical treatment.

We have mentioned before that the first way to avoid hemorrhoids or treat it is preventing constipation. The hard stools require straining with bowel movements what makes any kind or type of hemorrhoids treatment is not working.

Because of that, you need to drink plenty of fluids, and more than 8 cups of water daily. You have also to follow a high-fiber diet which allow you to make a soft stools. You can find fiber in fresh vegetables and fruits, beans and grain breads.

You may also use a fiber supplement like Metamucil or Citrucel or to use a stool softener like Colace or Senokot which are available at most pharmacies.
These few advices are very effective if you treat hemorrhoids early, and can help you preventing the development of serious conditions just like an thrombosed external hemorrhoid.

Although, there are many other ways to help preventing the development of hemorrhoids like hydrocortisone creams which allow you to relieve the pain, burning sensations and itching. But you need to use these all types of treatment as soon as you know that you have a small hemorrhoid or any kind of hemorrhoids such as hemorrhoids during pregnancy after asking your doctor in order to prevent the development of an thrombosed external hemorrhoids early.

When External Thrombosed Surgery is Needed?

Simply, if these all mentioned above methods don't work with you, then you have to make a surgery to get rid of hemorrhoids. It is required.

As we mentioned, people who have external thrombosed hemorrhoids usually present with pain on sitting, standing or defecating. Acutely tender, thrombosed external hemorrhoids can be surgically removed if encountered within the first 72 hours after onset. Hemorrhoidectomy is performed through an elliptic incision over the site of thrombosis with removal of the entire diseased hemorrhoidal plexus in one piece.

Caution must be exercised in order to avoid cutting into the muscle sphincter which is below the hemorrhoidal vessels. Infection after suture closure is rare secondary to the rich vascular network in the anal area. Stool softeners must be prescribed postoperatively to help prevent tearing at the suture line.

Note that the experience and training in general and skin surgery are required before the physician attempts this procedure unsupervised. there is also a risk of infection.

You may also like to follow the laser surgery that is more safe, less painful, less invasive procedure and carries less risk of infections. But on the other hand, this kind of surgeries are expensive and not available everywhere.


It is very important to see your doctor if you notice bleeding when you move your bowels, it may be a sign or a symptoms of hemorrhoids but it may be a sign of some other serious medical condition as well. So, you don't have to disregard this serious sign.
