Material and Method: Thirty-seven patients who had hemorrhoids at the end of the physical examination evaluations of eighty-seven coccydynia patients were included in this study. Patients with hemorrhoids were divided into two groups: those with external hemorrhoids (Group 1) and those with internal hemorrhoids (Group 2). The demographic characteristics were recorded and pain assessment of the cases were compared with the numerical rating scale (NRS) during the sitting and standing periods. p<0.05 was considered statistically significant.

Results: There was no statistically significant difference between the two groups in terms of demographic characteristics (p>0.05). In Group 1, NRS (during standing) (5.83±3.51) was significantly higher than Group 2 (2.28±1.59) (p<0.05).
