Q

Can a colonoscopy cause a hemorrhoid?

I recently had a colonoscopy done. Would it cause a hemorrhoid after?

Colonoscopy cannot cause a hemorrhoid. The colonoscopy prep may irritate an existing hemorrhoid, but not cause one. If you are having problems, please make an appointment to see your gastroenterologist.

No. Colonoscopy does not cause hemorrhoids.
