I am 26 years old i'm having some kind of discomfort from about good 6 weeks. I have not seen any bleeding in my stool yet. I went to see a primary physician and see asked me to lay down and stretch my knees to see if i had hemorrhoids. The doctor said that you don't have hemorrhoids. She didn't even touch the area properly by touching the hands. My question is can a doctor see internal hemorrhoids with a naked eye??
Then i scheduled an appointment with a Gastroenterology specialist and i told her my condition and she said you have hemorrhoids. She just touched my stomach, but she didn't look at my rectal area. Now i have Sigmoidoscopy exam in about a week. The specialist said that you have hemorrhoids but she just wants to confirm through the exam and that's it. However, i have increased fiber in my diet and now i'm not feeling that much pressure and pain.
I am just curious and wants to know that if the internal hemorrhoids are deep inside then how a primary physician can make a decision by just looking at it with naked eyes?
Any help on this would be highly appreciated.
