How long does hemorrhoid last?

You've got a nasty hemorrhoid - how long does hemorrhoid last?

Too long.

OK, that wasn't funny.

They can last as little as two or three days, if they aren't large and if you do nothing to make them worse.

They can last weeks, or keep subsiding and returning if they are big and you keep aggravating the problem.

If they are serious enough, you might need to resort to aggressive treatment, but eventually you must stop what is causing them, or they will always return - if they even go away at all.
