Hi Dana
Internal hemorroids are actually veins who's valves are not working and now formed a type of varicose vein in the anal area. If it is not managed by creams and suppositories, the only other option is surgery or laser removal. Discuss with your doctor - you will need a referral note to a surgeon that can do this.
