Today, got to help out at the morning clinic which basically seeing new patients and most of new cases are trouble with piles.
In fact, i suspect most of people visit a surgery outpatient clinic is because of haemorrhoid.
Quote from wiki:
In the USA, the prevalence is about 4.4%. It is estimated that approximately one half of all Americans have had this condition by the age of 50, and that 50% to 85% of the worlds population will be affected by hemorrhoids at some time in their life.
Haemorrhoid despite of it’s benign nature, can be a be trouble and discomfort to patient.
Some patients even opt for surgery and the cost of surgery can be up to Rm1500 minimum, in which patient paid for the stapler.
Any of the fellows plan to start a GP consultation, having adequent skill in diagnosis and management of haemorrhoid is a definite clinical and FINANCIAL benefits.
