Dr. Brand explains if secondary conditions are commonly discovered when women visit their doctors about hemorrhoids.
That’s very common, and in good part, it has to do with first, the information the patient can give to the physician and the second, then, is the skill of the physician at, number one, assessing whether those symptoms are consistent with hemorrhoids; number two, are there other conditions the physician has considered that can cause the same symptoms; and number three, are there other serious conditions that we need to think about before we can say that the hemorrhoids are the cause.
