Hemorrhoids are also known as piles. Hemorrhoids are swollen or inflamed veins in the anus and lower rectum that can be itchy, painful, and potentially cause bleeding during bowel movements. Although they can be extremely unpleasant and painful for many people, they can be easily treated and are very preventable.
There are two types of hemorrhoids, internal and external.
External hemorrhoids lie under the skin around the anus, and the delicate skin there can be easily irritated and bleed during a bowel movement. Blood clots can form in external hemorrhoids and cause a great deal of pain and inflammation.
Internal hemorrhoids are less noticeable as they lie inside the rectum, the patient is not aware of them as they do not generally cause any discomfort. However straining during a bowel movement can irritate the delicate surface of the hemorrhoid and cause bleeding or pass the hemorrhoid outside the anus; this is called a protruding or prolapsed hemorrhoid and can be very painful.
Hemorrhoid symptoms include painless bleeding during bowel movements that results in bright red blood, itching, irritation, or swelling in the anus, the formation of a sensitive or painful lump near the anus, and sometimes anal leakage.
As hemorrhoids generally get worse as time goes by, health care professionals suggest they should be treated as soon as they appear.
