What are Hemorrhoids and What Causes Them?
Hemorrhoids are swollen and inflamed veins in the rectum and anus that cause discomfort and bleeding. Hemorrhoids are very common with more than one million new cases in the US each year. At Blair Gastroenterology Associates, we want you to know that just because they are common it doesn’t mean you need to keep suffering. Hemorrhoids are treatable with an outpatient procedure known as Hemorrhoid Banding.
