Top 2 Swelling on Both Sides of the Butt Causes

  1. 1.Hemorrhoids

    Hemorrhoids are a very common condition that affects more 50% of the population, typically after the age of 30. Hemorrhoids are the "varicose veins of the anus and rectum" - enlarged, bulging blood vessels in the anus that can bleed or clot.

    You can treat this at home by eating more fiber and drinking more water, which loosens your stools and allowing the hemorrhoid to heal. Changing your health habits can also help - lose weight and exercise more and keep the anus clean. Topical creams and ointments can help with the pain, as would a warm water spray or sitz baths. If these treatments do not work after some time, simple surgical operations can be done in the primary care office. Or, for very severe cases of hemorrhoids, surgery may be needed to remove the hemorrhoid.
