Varicose Veins: Varicose veins are abnormal, twisted, dilated and enlarged veins that develop near the surface of the skin. Although any vein of the body can be affected, the most affected veins are the ones in the legs. Varicose veins usually don’t result in any symptoms. For most people, the bigger concern is about the appearance of their veins rather than pain. Treating varicose veins is normally a very safe and simple process.
According to the severity of varicose veins, there are several treatments including non-invasive and minimally invasive options available.

Haemorrhoids: Also known as piles, are clumps of veins in and around your anus and lower rectum that can stretch and bleed with pressure. They are similar to varicose veins and cause discomfort when they swell or bulge. Haemorrhoids can develop inside the rectum or under the skin around the anus.

The symptoms of haemorrhoids are itching, swelling and pain around the anus. You may have blood or pain during bowel movements. Fecal leakage is also a symptom.

Haemorrhoids or piles is diagnosed with a visual exam and an internal exam. The doctor may advise an additional diagnostic test called a sigmoidoscopy for an internal view.

At CosmeSurge Hospital, we provide the latest and the safest treatment options to treat haemorrhoids based on your case.

Fissures: An anal fissure is a small tear in the thin, moist tissue that lines the anus and may occur when you pass hard stools during a bowel movement. It can bleed and make bowel movements very painful. Sometimes the pain lasts for hours after you’ve gone to the bathroom.

The doctor will diagnose an anal fissure during a visual exam. Further tests may be suggested in order to know whether there is any other underlying condition. This testing could be done by anoscopy or flexible sigmoidoscopy or colonoscopy.

If you have a chronic anal fissure or if the symptoms are very severe, then your doctor may suggest surgery. The procedure is called lateral internal sphincterotomy (LIS). A small portion of the anal sphincter muscle is cut to reduce spasm and pain and promote healing.
