Answer

Hemorrhoidal complaints are usually not associated with other medical conditions or diseases. However, patients with the following diseases and conditions have an increased risk of hemorrhoidal complaints:

  • Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD): IBD and hemorrhoidal problems occur frequently; unusual hemorrhoidal presentations and findings should alert the clinician to the potential of IBD. [13]

  • Ulcerative colitis and Crohn disease

  • Pregnancy
