The doctors of the Hemorrhoids Centers of Los Angeles (Beverly Hills, Newport Beach, and Huntington Beach) are specialists in treating and removing internal and external thrombosed hemorrhoids.

Thrombosis medically means “blood clot” and it can either partially or absolutely block blood flow both in and out of the hemorrhoid.

Symptoms, causes, and the Proctologist’s medical treatments between the two types of thrombosed hemorrhoids are very different.

My visit with the Doctor Maz at The Hemorrhoids Center of Newport Beach was one of the best I’ve ever experienced! He was very knowledgeable and charismatic. He was able to lighten the mood about my hemorrhoids. I felt totally comfortable having him perform my surgery. I’m very relieved and impressed with the results! His excellent skills resulted in a very clean and scar-less outcome! It was very important to me that I had an excellent aesthetic result. I would recommend Dr. Maz to anyone I’ve also now scheduled a colonoscopy with him because I am so confident in his exceptional work! ~Vitals

A thrombosed external hemorrhoid is essentially a hemorrhoid with a swollen blood clot that has formed inside the hemorrhoid. As the thrombosis or blood clot becomes bigger, the skin around the anal opening begins to stretch, causing severe anal pain. A thrombosed external hemorrhoid is known as one of the most painful experiences any man or woman can ever endure. Medical journals and hemorrhoids removal doctors commonly describe the pain as “exquisite”.

If you develop an external thrombosed hemorrhoid, most likely you know that something is wrong (the pain is so intense) and you should get help from our hemorrhoids specialists immediately.

In addition to pain, early signs of a developing hemorrhoid can include anal itching, burning, swelling or inflammation. Most importantly, a thrombosed external hemorrhoid can present very similarly to an anal abscess which must urgently be treated and surgically drained.

The Hemorrhoids Centers of Los Angeles (Beverly Hills, Newport Beach, and Huntington Beach) offer various treatments for thrombosed external hemorrhoids.  If left untreated, a thrombosed external hemorrhoid may reabsorb in two to four weeks or bleed through the skin. There is a risk of complications and side effects if the blood clot does not get reabsorbed which is why seeking treatment is highly medically advised.

An internal thrombosed hemorrhoid is a very different type of hemorrhoid and medical condition – though both types of hemorrhoids are very painful. An internal hemorrhoid is essentially a hemorrhoid that has formed a blood clot that does not extend outwards of the anus. However, if the internal thrombosed hemorrhoid prolapses, it may bulge out externally from the anus.

Symptoms of an internal thrombosed hemorrhoid include:

  • Difficulty passing stool
  • Difficulty sitting
  • Difficulty standing
  • Many have difficulty walking
  • Extreme discomfort
  • A tremendous amount of consistent pain
  • May have difficulty urinating
