Real photo pictures of HEMROIDS / HEMORRHOIDS.
These medical-grade clinical hemorrhoids photos (found below) may help with correct hemorrhoid identification.
If you believe you or someone you know may have hemorrhoids, the pictures of hemorrhoids below may help you with an initial identification and classification of your hemorrhoids.
The current clinical pictures of hemorrhoids we have to offer show a range of external hemorrhoids, including small, large, and how they may change in appearance depending on muscular straining.
We also have photographs of normal prolapsed hemorrhoids, and prolapsed hemorrhoids with thrombosis.
This collection of photos / pictures of hemorrhoids, represents our ongoing efforts to offer useful hemorrhoid information and features, covering as many hemorrhoids varieties as possible, in order to assist with comparison, identification and treatment of hemorrhoids.
The following pictures of hemorrhoids are not meant to be a replacement for proper medical diagnosis, which I feel is well worth the money and potential embarrassment involved.
These clinical pictures of hemorrhoids are not meant to replace a doctor's diagnosis, which I personally feel is important enough to pay for and endure any embarrassment. If I may point out, I, as a long term (past) sufferer of hemorrhoids, could not differentiate between a skin tag and a pregnancy-induced hemorrhoid, but this lady's doctor did so quickly and effectively.
While clinical pictures of hemorrhoids are limited in their use for preliminary diagnosis or to understand your doctor's diagnosis, they can be very useful for these comparisons. They can also be helpful in deciding whether you should get a second opinion.
Once your hemorrhoids have been appropriately diagnosed and categorized, the next step is to find quick, effective relief from hemorrhoid symptoms and to find a cure to make your hemorrhoids a thing of the past. The use of clinical photographs or anatomical renderings is a useful part of this process, but remember that it's only the first step of diagnosis.
WARNING - READ PRIOR TO ACCESSING PHOTOGRAPHS / PICTURE OF HEMROIDS
These clinical pictures of hemorrhoids were at one point located on our homepage, but many have found them to be too graphic in nature.
These are medical photographs of real patients, used with those kind people's permission. While their privacy has, of course, been protected, we are still talking about real life photographs / pictures of hemorrhoids.
We took them off of our home page because some who came looking for information on hemorrhoids weren't expecting to find such realistic and detailed photographs / pictures of hemorrhoids right up front.
However, we never recieved a complaint.
We have decided to keep the photographs solely on this page so that our visitors and readers only have to look, if real clinical hemorrhoids pictures are what they're searching for.
Considering the length of this introduction, realize that the following medical-grade photographs are VERY GRAPHIC in nature - only proceed if that is, in fact, what you're looking for.
The clinical hemorrhoids picture on the left shows Grade 4 prolapsed hemorrhoids. These are internal hemorrhoids so advanced that they permanently protrude from the body. Grade 4 hemorrhoids fall back outside the body quickly even when manually pushed back in, and never retract inside on their own. The hemorrhoid in this picture appears to also be thrombosed, indicated by the large size, stretching and tightness of the skin.
While many seem to think that hemorrhoids are a source of grade-school humor, as you can see in this photo, that if neglected, they can develop into a quite serious and nasty health condition
On the right is a picture of an external hemorrhoid, identified as such by its clear origination on the rim of the anal sphincter instead of poking through the sphincter as a prolapsed hemorrhoid does.
Next is a photograph / picture of normal prolapsed internal hemorrhoids, prominently featuring the "grape" appearance so common to the condition:
Next is a picture of a pregnancy/childbirth induced external hemrorhoid. Despite its small size, it possessed the capability to be both excruciatingly painful and to grow significantly during straining.
An external hemorrhoid of this size could easily be mistaken as a tiny bit of loose skin designated as a skin tag. Many people have skin tags for a variety of reasons, but skin tags do not contain a swollen vein that causes misery the way that hemorrhoids do. Therefore, being able to tell the difference saves both time and misery. This particular clinical hemorrhoid photograph was donated by a most gracious lady - many and deep thanks.
More deep thanks to the gracious donators of the following three clinical photos.
These photographs / pictures of hemorrhoids demonstrate how external hemorrhoids can apparently grow or shrink with muscular straining.
The picture on the furthermost left shows the external hemorrhoid during anal relaxation. This is what it looks like the vast majority of the time. The middle photo was taken during slight straining, as in the beginning of a bowel movement. The photo on the right depicts the external hemorrhoid during maximum straining. This series of photographs dramatically documents how abdominal straining can both cause hemorrhoids and make existing ones worse.
These hemorrhoids are easy to classify as external because there is nothing either poking through or hiding the anal sphincter.
If your condition does not appear to be like those above, it may be that you have internal hemorrhoids - a condition you cannot see normally, unless you use medical apparatus and someone else to assist you.
All of the hemorrhoid pictures above were taken of either external hemorrhoids or prolapsed internal hemorrhoids. If your condition doesn't visually resemble any of these photos, you may be suffering from Grade 1 internal hemorrhoids, which are invisibly tucked away inside the anal canal at all times. Diagnosis of Grade 1 internal hemorrhoids requires that a qualified person (in other words, a doctor) uses specific medical apparatus in order to get a visual confirmation.
If you have a condition around your anus that doesn't look like any of these photo pictures, then chances are you are suffering from a different condition to hemorrhoids. The most likely one being genital warts.
Some photo's pictures of conditions that may be confused with hemorrhoids:
This 36 year old male, suffers from Crohns disease. The picture photo of skin tags above, shows that they tend to have a flatter appearance, less fuller in other words and develop more on the anal rim. An untrained eye could easily misdiagnose skin tags as hemorrhoids.
We need your photographs.
Wanted: Should you have the ownership of and copyright to clinical pictures of hemorrhoids, images, pictures, diagrams or anatomical renderings of any variety of hemorrhoid, I would like to place them here. Of course, I would provide a link back to you as a large thank you. I'd need the gift of the image to be permanent, but the link back to you would be permanent as well.
If you're a professional photographer looking to increase your exposure and profile, contact me about providing photographs or diagrams of either hemorrhoids or cholesterol and I'll credit your work prominently. I would even be happy to provide space for a small photographer's profile and how you took the photographs.
If you'd like me to purchase your hemorrhoid photograph or image, please contact me and we'll negotiate.
In addition to hemorrhoid photographs, I am also in the process of obtaining photographs of cholesterol xanthelasma, which presents as yellowish nodules and yellowish patches on the skin.
Important Note: I will need verification of copyright ownership of any given image before I accept it - normally a free PayPal account for payment, with preferably a paid for email account for correspondence.
