A rectal polyp that is overly large could need to be surgically removed. Transanal excision is an option if the polyp is low in the rectum. The polyp is removed through the rectum under general anesthesia, resulting in little discomfort and a speedy recovery.

The majority of hemorrhoids can be prevented with a healthy diet and regular exercise, or they can be treated with medications or non-surgical methods. A surgeon may recommend a haemorrhoidectomy if conservative measures fail or if the hemorrhoids are very big.

The painful symptoms can be relieved by removing the hemorrhoids, but they might potentially recur.

On the other hand, a basic fissurectomy entails removing the sentinel pile, if any, as well as the scarred superficial skin surrounding the anal fissure. Primarily, the surgical wound can be closed or left open.

The doctor may advise cautious waiting if one’shernia is tiny and not causing them any discomfort. Wearing a supporting truss might occasionally help reduce discomfort, but it should fit correctly and is being administered effectively by consulting the doctor first. Surgery is typically necessary to treat uncomfortable or enlarging hernias in order to relieve pain and avoid more serious consequences.
