What is Hemorrhoids?

Published at : 26-06-2019 View : 10453

¬† ¬† Hemorrhoids can be caused by many reasons, including straining to release a bowel movement, constipation, pregnancy, aging, chronic diarrhea, sitting for long periods of time ‚Äď especially on the toilet, anal intercourse, obesity, and genetics.¬†Hemorrhoids can occur within the anus or above, but they can also be external and under the skin of the anus.

What are the symptoms if you have hemorrhoids?

     Symptoms of hemorrhoids include painless bleeding during a bowel movement, itching and irritation in the anal region, pain and discomfort, swelling of the anus, a lump near the anus, and leakage of feces. Hemorrhoids are swollen veins located around the anus or in lower rectum. Nearly three out of four adults will have hemorrhoids from time to time. Hemorrhoids, also called piles, happen when clusters of veins in your rectum or anus get swollen. When these veins swell, blood pools and causes the veins to expand outward into the membranes around your rectal and anal tissue. This can become uncomfortable or painful

 

   Hemorrhoids are one of the most common causes of rectal bleeding. They're rarely dangerous and usually clear up in a couple of weeks. But you should see some doctors from Heng Kang Clinic to make sure it's not a more serious condition. They can also remove hemorrhoids that won't go away or are very painful.

  There are two types of hemorrhoids that can be seen, first the Internal hemorrhoids, Internal hemorrhoids are far enough inside the rectum that you can't usually see or feel them. They don't generally hurt because you have few pain-sensing nerves there. Bleeding may be the only sign of them. And then the External hemorrhoids are under the skin around the anus, where there are many more pain-sensing nerves, so they tend to hurt as well as bleed.

  Sometimes hemorrhoids prolapse, or get bigger and bulge outside the anal sphincter. Then you may be able to see them as moist bumps that are pinker than the surrounding area. And they're more likely to hurt, often when you poop.

    Prolapsed hemorrhoids usually go back inside on their own. Even if they don't, they can often be gently pushed back into place. A blood clot can form in an external hemorrhoid, turning it purple or blue. This is called a thrombosis. It can hurt and itch a lot and could bleed. When the clot dissolves, you may still have a bit of skin left over, which could get irritated.

What are the hazard of hemorrhoids?

   Some people may be more likely to get hemorrhoids if other family members, like their parents, had them. A buildup of pressure in your lower rectum can affect blood flow and make the veins there swell. That may happen from extra weight when you're obese or pregnant or it could come from -

  • Pushing during bowel movements

  • Straining when you do something that's physically hard, like lifting something heavy

  People who stand or sit for long stretches of time are at greater risk, too. You may get them when you have constipation or diarrhea that doesn't clear up. Coughing, sneezing, and vomiting could make them worse.
