Hard knots in Hemorrhoids

I have had hemorrhoids since the delivery of my first child.  Occasionally they will flare up but with application of ointment they generally go away.  This past flare up has lasted 3 weeks, and I've noticed that there are hard knots in with my hemorrhoids.  I read somewhere that they could be blood clots and to take aspirin and they will pass.  My concern is the possibility of cancer but would think I would have other symtoms (symptoms). What are your suggestions?

Hi and welcome and sorry the late reply. Hemorrhoids can produce hard knots as the tissues produce a balloning affect where blood gets stuck. I personally dont believe its cancer but the simple hemorrhioids. The knots going away do not have any time frame so could take longer this time, but maybe have a doctor check to make sure your ok.
