Overview

Anoscopy is mandatory to visualize internal hemorrhoids, as they are not visible on inspection of the anal verge or palpable on performing digital rectal exam.

Other Diagnostic Studies

  • Internal hemorrhoids can be viewed only using the anoscope or the flexible sigmoidoscope.
  • Hemorrhoids appear as bulging bluish masses above the dentate line.
  • If there are accompanying constitutional symptoms (e.g. weight loss), colonoscopy should be done to exclude colon cancer.
