Anal Tags & Hemorrhoids
External hemorrhoids and anal skin tags can result from chronic issues such as Constipation. They can also result from Pregnancy, Weight Lifting, Core Body Exercises, and other activities that cause increased pressure or trauma to the perianal tissue. Regardless of their origin, time and tincture will often improve their symptoms. However, the resulting loss of elasticity in the skin leaves extra tissue in the perianal region. Once the initial inflammation resolves within 2 to 3 weeks, the symptomatic flareups from the remaining tissue can be temporarily controlled with medicines but long-term relief and resolution of the extra perianal tissue requires treatment from an experienced proctologist.
Our expert doctors safely remove these lesions, as needed, in the comfort of our office. Depending on the size, number & precise location of the anal tags and hemorrhoids, we offer various options for definitive treatment. These include “painless” procedures such as rubber band ligation and Infrared light “LASER” Hemorrhoidectomy. We also offer excision of the hemorrhoids and skin tags when appropriate.
In the long term, these treatments are more cost effective and provide better results than medical management. Furthermore, the decreased suffering from recurrent lifelong hemorrhoidal flareups significantly outweighs any short-term discomfort one may feel from the procedure itself.
