What kind of doctor should I see about my hemorrhoids?

A Answers (1)

  • If you're having some of the characteristic symptoms of hemorrhoids - swelling, bleeding, or pain - you may want to visit your regular doctor first. Often, hemorrhoids are mild and can be treated with certain lifestyle changes. If your doctor sees indications of a more complicated case of hemorrhoids or a more serious condition, they may refer you to a specialist like a gastroenterologist or a colon and rectal surgeon.
