What is hemorrhoid?

Commonly known as piles, hemorrhoids are swollen areas around the anus where feces are excreted from the body. They can form inside or outside the anus, often due to excessive straining or poor blood flow, and may result in painless bleeding.

Symptoms of hemorrhoid

  • Blood in stool

  • Hemorrhoids (piles) or a lump at the anus

  • Passing out blood from the anus

  • Pain over the anus

  • Feeling the need to pass motion even though nothing comes out

  • Itching around the anus

  • Mucous in stool

  • Ulcers over the genitals

Questions your doctor may ask to check for hemorrhoid

  • Do you have blood in your stool?

  • Do you have hemorrhoids or a lump at the anus?

  • Are you bleeding from the anus?

  • Are you experiencing anal pain?

  • Do you frequently feel the need to have a bowel movement but can't?

Treatment for hemorrhoid

Piles can initially be treated with simple home remedies like increasing fiber intake and using sitz baths. Other options include creams, procedures like rubber band application, and surgeries.
