Hemorrhoids/piles are swollen veins in the anal canal. This common problem can be painful, but it’s usually not serious. Dr. Ashish Bhanot – Best Piles Doctor In Delhi, provide Hemorrhoids & Piles Treatment In Delhi.
Veins can swell inside the anal canal to form internal hemorrhoids/piles. Or they can swell near the opening of the anus to form external hemorrhoids/piles. You can have both types at the same time. The symptoms and treatment depend on which type you have.
Too much pressure on the veins in the pelvic and rectal area causes hemorrhoids/piles. Normally, tissue inside the anus fills with blood to help control bowel movements. If you strain to move stool, the increased pressure causes the veins in this tissue to swell and stretch. This can cause hemorrhoids/piles. Diarrhea or constipation also may lead to straining and can increase pressure on veins in the anal canal. Being overweight can also lead to hemorrhoids/piles. Pregnant women can get hemorrhoids/piles during the last 6 months of pregnancy. This is because of increased pressure on the blood vessels in the pelvic area. Straining to push the baby out during labor can make hemorrhoids/piles worse.
Bleeding when you have a bowel movement
A lump in or around your anus
Itchy or sore skin around your anus
A slimy discharge of mucus from your anus
A feeling that your bowels haven’t emptied completely
External hemorrhoids/piles can get irritated and clot under the skin, causing a hard painful lump. This is called a thrombosed, or clotted, hemorrhoid.
A number of surgical techniques may be used if conservative management and simple procedures fail. All surgical treatments are associated with some degree of complications including bleeding, infection, anal strictures and urinary retention, due to the close proximity of the rectum to the nerves that supply the bladder. There may also be a small risk of fecal incontinence, particularly of liquid, with rates reported between 0% and 28%.Mucosal ectropion is another condition which may occur after hemorrhoidectomy (often together with anal stenosis).This is where the anal mucosa becomes everted from the anus, similar to a very mild form of rectal prolapse.
