    Risk of Hemorrhoid for Diabetic Patients

    A less well-known symptom of internal hemorrhoids is bowel movements that don't fully evacuate the rectum.

    If the internal hemorrhoid is sufficiently large, feces may have greater difficulty getting by them. This makes a bowel movement take far longer than usual.

    This symptom also leads to internal hemorrhoid infection. If fecal matter collects around the hemorrhoid, and then the hemorrhoid is cut or scratched, infection is almost inevitable.
