Haemorrhoids (Piles)
Haemorrhoids (often known as Piles) are enlarged and engorged blood vessels in or around the back passage (anus). These may be associated with pain, bleeding, itching and feeling as if a lump or bump is hanging down.
  • You may notice a pain or ache around the anus and lower bowel (rectum), which can be really quite severe.
  • There may be itching of the area.
  • There may be bleeding from the back passage. This will be bright red blood, not usually mixed in with the motion, but often seen on the toilet paper.
  • There is often a feeling of something coming down, or a bulge or lump at the anus.
  • If a haemorrhoid at the outside of the anus gets a blood clot in it (thrombosed external pile) it leads to a particularly tender, hardish lump.
Haemorrhoids are very common. They are said to be more common in countries where the diet has traditionally been more processed and low in fibre. The main contributory causes are those things that cause us to raise the pressure in the abdomen. This causes the blood vessels to swell and become engorged. It seems that the people most at risk of developing haemorrhoids are those who have more causes for raised abdominal pressure, such as:

    Hemorrhoid Overview
    Hemorrhoids are enlarged, painful veins in your rectum. Hemorrhoids develop from 2 different places. There are 2 sets of veins that drain the blood from the lower rectum and anus.
    • The internal veins can become swollen to form internal hemorrhoids. Internal hemorrhoids, unless they are severe, cannot be seen or felt, unlike external hemorrhoids. Likewise, the external veins can swell to form external hemorrhoids. External hemorrhoids can be seen around the outside of the anus and, many times, can be felt.

Hemorrhoids are very similar to varicose veins in the legs. The increased pressure and swelling may result from straining to move the bowel. Factors contributing to hemorrhoids are: pregnancy, heredity, aging, and chronic constipation or diarrhea. Hemorrhoids may occur inside the anus (internal) or under the skin around the anus (external). An internal hemorrhoid may protrude through the anus outside the body. This is called a protruding hemorrhoid. Symptoms? There are many symptoms and everyone with hemorrhoids will not experience all of the symptoms. Some of the symptoms are: bright red blood covering the stool, painful swelling around the anus, a hard lump around the anus, fissures, fistulae, abscesses, or irritation and itching (pruritus ani). Excessive straining, rubbing or cleaning the anus may worsen symptoms. What Causes Hemorrhoids?

There are a few reasons that pregnancy makes you more prone to hemorrhoids (as well as to varicose veins in the legs and sometimes even in the vulva). Your growing uterus puts pressure on the pelvic veins and the inferior vena cava, a large vein on the right side of the body that receives blood from the lower limbs. This can slow the return of blood from the lower half of your body, which increases the pressure on the veins below the level of your uterus and causes them to become more dilated or swollen.

    What are hemorrhoids?
    The term hemorrhoids refers to a condition in which the veins around the anus or lower rectum are swollen and inflamed. Hemorrhoids may result from straining to move stool. Other contributing factors include pregnancy, aging, chronic constipation or diarrhea, and anal intercourse. Hemorrhoids are either inside the anus (internal) or under the skin around the anus (external). (See figure.) Top
    What are the symptoms of hemorrhoids?
    Many anorectal problems, including fissures, fistulae, abscesses, or irritation and itching (pruritus ani), have similar symptoms and are incorrectly referred to as hemorrhoids. Hemorrhoids usually are not dangerous or life threatening. In most cases, hemorrhoidal symptoms will go away within a few days. Although many people have hemorrhoids, not all experience symptoms. The most common symptom of internal hemorrhoids is bright red blood covering the stool, on toilet paper, or in the toilet bowl. However, an internal hemorrhoid may protrude through the anus outside the body, becoming irritated and painful. This is known as a protruding hemorrhoid.

    Hemorrhoids Hemorrhoids, or piles, are one of mankind's most common and nagging disorders. By themselves, hemorrhoids are rarely serious, but they can be extremely troublesome. In some instances, they may mask a more serious disorder, such as colon or rectal cancer. Therefore, hemorrhoids require the proper diagnosis and treatment by a physician. Hemorrhoids are dilated (enlarged) veins which occur in and around the anus and rectum. They may be external (outside the anus) or internal and slip to the outside. In both of these instances, the hemorrhoids can be felt and seen as lumps or knots. Hemorrhoids also may remain inside the rectum and so cannot be felt or seen. These are called internal hemorrhoids. What Causes Hemorrhoids?
    A common cause of hemorrhoids is simply the standing position, in which all the blood above the rectum exerts pressure on the rectal and anal areas. Other conditions which contribute to hemorrhoids are: poor bowel habits, constipation, diarrhea, pregnancy, obesity, and especially frequent straining when having a bowel movement. However, some patients will have none of these conditions and still develop hemorrhoids. What Are the Complications?

    Medical Author: Jay W. Marks, MD
    Medical Editor: Thomas P. Sokol, MD, FACS, FASCRS What are hemorrhoids?
    A precise definition of hemorrhoids does not exist, but they can be described as masses or clumps (“cushions”) of tissue within the anal canal that contain blood vessels and their surrounding, supporting tissue made up of muscle and elastic fibers. The anal canal is the last four centimeters through which stool passes as it goes from the rectum to the outside world. The anus is the opening of the anal canal to the outside world. Although most people think hemorrhoids are abnormal, they are present in everyone. It is only when the hemorrhoidal cushions enlarge that hemorrhoids can cause problems and be considered abnormal or a disease. Prevalence of hemorrhoids
    Although hemorrhoids occur in everyone, they become large and cause problems in only 4 percent of the general population. Hemorrhoids that cause problems are found equally in men and women, and their prevalence peaks between 45 and 65 years of age.
