About Hemorrhoids

Back to the top

Hemorrhoids, also known as piles, are swollen veins located in and outside the anus and rectum. When these veins become enlarged, they can become uncomfortable and painful. External hemorrhoids develop underneath the skin surrounding the anus. This can cause swelling, irritation, pain, and bleeding around the anus. Internal hemorrhoids develop within the rectum, which can lead to bleeding during bowel movements and prolapsing (in which the vein pushes through the anal opening). Prolapsed hemorrhoids can cause pain and discomfort.

Hemorrhoids are usually caused by pressure on the lower body. This can be due to straining during bowel movements, straining from lifting heavy objects or weights, or weight gain. Pregnant women are at increased risk of hemorrhoids due to the associated weight gain.

Other risk factors that may cause hemorrhoids are:

  • Chronic diarrhea or constipation
  • Obesity
  • Anal intercourse
  • Low-fiber diets

Hemorrhoids are extremely common. One in twenty Americans, or three in four adults, will experience hemorrhoids at some point in time. Although they can be painful, hemorrhoids can usually be treated with at-home remedies and medical procedures. Untreated hemorrhoids can lead to rare but serious complications such as anemia, blood clots, and strangulated hemorrhoids (a cut-off in blood supply to the hemorrhoid, which causes severe pain).
