What is Piles?

Hemorrhoids or piles are swellings containing enlarged blood vessels that are found inside or around the rectum and anus. Hemorrhoids result from increased pressure on the anus.

What are the Symptoms?

  • Blood in stools
  • Pain while defecating
  • Mucus discharge while defecating
  • Painful hard lump in the anus
  • Itching sensation around the anus
  • Feeling of fullness in the bowels even after passing a stool

What are the Implications of Piles?

If untreated, hemorrhoids may cause complications such as anemia and weakness due to the chronic blood loss during defecation. There is a risk of developing strangulated haemorrhoids where the blood supply of a prolapsed pile gets obstructed by the constriction of the anal sphincter.

Treatment of Piles

The treatment of piles varies from person-to-person, depending on the extent of damage from hemorrhoids.
