Dr. Marc Brand explains if hemorrhoids are hereditary.

Dr. Brand:
That’s a tough question to answer because they are so common that it may be hard to separate whether somebody had it because of the frequency that it occurs or because they lived in the same household with another individual and have similar eating patterns, similar bowel habits, or if there truly is something that can be passed from one person to the next. In general, it’s thought to be a combination of these factors.
