Our expert says:
You don't need to remove piles just because they bleed. You can treat conservatively with Anusol or Scheriproct and by taking a stool softner like Lactulose. If the bleeding persists or the pile cause a painful clot, you may have to go for a small operation - your GP can have a look and if needed, refer you to a surgeon. You will have to go to hospital for this for a day or two.
