Dr. Marc Brand shares if a woman is sick if she has hemorrhoids.

Dr. Brand:
No. Hemorrhoids are a nuisance, and they are not anything that would cause a threat to you, with the caveat that you understand that your complaints are truly from hemorrhoids. So unless you’ve been examined by a specialist who has a good understanding of hemorrhoids, you may have some other condition and not hemorrhoids that’s causing your symptoms.
