Gordon County, Georgia

Gordon County is a county located in the northwestern part of the U. S. state of Georgia. As of the 2010 census, the population was 55,186; the county seat is Calhoun. Gordon County comprises the Calhoun, GA Micropolitan Statistical Area, included in the Atlanta-Athens-Clarke County-Sandy Springs, GA Combined Statistical Area. Gordon County was created on February 1850 by an act of the Georgia General Assembly; the new county was formed from portions of Floyd counties. All lands that would become Gordon County were occupied by the Cherokee Indians—and, in fact, the area was home of New Echota, the last seat of the Cherokee Nation. While Cherokees remained on their homeland, the General Assembly enacted legislation in December 1830 that provided for surveying the Cherokee Nation in Georgia and dividing it into sections and land lots. Subsequently, the legislature identified this entire area as "Cherokee County". An act of December 3, 1832 divided the Cherokee lands into ten new counties—Cass, Cobb, Forsyth, Lumpkin, Murray and Union.

Cherokee lands were distributed to whites in a land lottery, but the legislature temporarily prohibited whites from taking possession of lots on which Cherokees still lived. It was not until December 29, 1835 that Georgia had an official basis for claiming the unceded Cherokee lands that included the future location of Gordon County. In the Treaty of New Echota, a faction of the Cherokees agreed to give up all Cherokee claims to land in Georgia, Alabama and North Carolina and move west in return for $5 million. Though a majority of Cherokees opposed the treaty and refused to leave, the U. S. and Georgia considered it binding. In 1838, U. S. Army troops rounded up the last of 15,000 Cherokees in Georgia and forced them to march west in what came to be known as the "Trail of Tears", making this area the starting point of the removal. Gordon County's original 1850 boundaries were changed numerous times between 1852 and 1877, during which time the legislature transferred portions of Cass, Murray and Walker counties to Gordon County, while transferring land from Gordon to Floyd and Murray counties.

Georgia's 94th county was named for William Washington Gordon, the first Georgian to graduate from West Point and first president of the Central of Georgia Railroad. According to the U. S.

Perianal hematoma

Perianal hematoma is a hematoma located in, or on the border of the anus. It is sometimes inappropriately referred to as an external hemorrhoid; the symptoms of a perianal hematoma can present over a short period of time. Pain, varying from mild to severe, will occur as the skin surrounding the rupture expands due to pressure; this pain will last after the blood has clotted, may continue for two to four days. Perianal hematoma are caused by the rupture of a small vein; this rupture may be the result of forceful or strained bowel movement, anal sex or caused by heavy lifting, coughing or straining. Once the rupture has formed, blood pools within a few hours and, if left untreated, forms a clot; the clot may spontaneously mobilize from the vessel wall leading to stroke. Management of thrombosed external hemorrhoids has been poorly studied as of 2018. If diagnosed within the first few hours of presentation, the pooling blood may be evacuated using a syringe. Once the blood has clotted, removal by this method is no longer possible and the clot can be removed via an incision over the lump under local anesthetic.

The incision will heal. Care needs to be taken in regard to bleeding from the wound and possible infection with fecal bacteria. If left alone it will heal within a few days or weeks; the topical application of a cream containing a heparinoid is advised to clear the clot
