Everyone has hemorrhoids as they are necessary for normal evacuation of stool from the body. Hemorrhoid only becomes a problem when they become enlarged, and the blood vessels groups clump around the rectal area. The piles swell when passing stool irritates the surface of the hemorrhoids.
Internal hemorrhoid often goes unnoticed unless it swells considerably and there is blood in a bowel movement. Sometimes internal hemorrhoid protrudes or prolapses, so they appear outside of the anus as large bumps that are often wet or bleeding. There are many nerves around the anus, so these types of hemorrhoid may be quite painful. Typically they will recede on their own. An external hemorrhoid is under the skin around the anus but can also prolapse.
The cause of hemorrhoid is often a diet lacking enough fiber which creates more constipation in stools and as such more strain when voiding. This pressure creates the veins in and around the rectal area to enlarge and often bleed. Hemorrhoids may form inside the rectum or outside around the anus. Other causes of hemorrhoids include pregnancy, obesity or chronic constipation or diarrhea.
Common Symptoms of Hemorrhoid:
- Heat and swelling around the anal area.
- Itching, burning, and pain.
- Mucus or blood discharge.
- Bloody stools.
- Difficulty being comfortable while sitting.
- Feeling of urgency to have a bowel movement.
