Ive had minor issues for 20yrs plus - more started as fissures, Now minor piles and occasional very painful fissures that takes weeks to heal. I am currently inserting Anasol on a daily basis due to the endless itching. Is it worth approaching GP to see if there are any minor surgery/treatments. My diet and habits are good it seems to make very little difference to what I eat. How to piles shrink or dont they? Is there any sort of freezing or lazer treatment? Assuming mine are prob classed as minor. Many feedbacK?

Definitely go to GP. Are you having a high fibre diet with lots of water, bread/white flour isn't good either.

My DH has suffered for years on and off. When they are bad he uses Proctofoam ( on prescription) which really works.
