Piles or hemorrhoids are a condition in which the veins in or around the rectum and anus swell up. They are of 2 types: internal hemorrhoids, that occur inside the rectum and external hemorrhoids that occur around the anal opening.
People who suffer from diarrhoea and constipation for a prolonged period, obese people, pregnant women, and those who physically strain themselves during bowel movements or otherwise are more likely to develop piles. The chances also increase as the age progresses.
Yes. If a person strains excessively while passing stool, it may lead to bleeding from the rectal or anal area that can be seen after passing stool. In certain cases (such as patients with anemia) the bleeding may become excessive and the patient may experience dizziness, leading to further complications. Hence, one must not hesitate to seek help from a doctor on noticing such symptoms.
Pain, irritation or itching around the anus may be accompanied by faecal incontinence (a condition wherein the patient loses control and passes stool) along with bleeding and pain following bowel movements are usually the symptoms seen while experiencing piles or hemorrhoids. Also, a patient suffering from bleeding disorders may experience more severe symptoms. One must seek immediate medical care if the symptoms aggravate.
Piles is a common condition that can occur at any age and can be managed well with minor treatments. Special care must be taken in patients with bleeding disorders such as anemia, as in these cases the symptoms worsen if proper medical professional help is not taken.
Symptomatic relief can be provided by medications like stool softeners and topical ointments along with increasing the fiber in the diet and the water intake.
If these are ineffective or if the hemorrhoids are larger, other procedures may be suggested by the doctor such as injections, rubber banding, surgery, and advanced procedures like laser hemorrhoidectomy that serves as a minimally invasive option and helps in providing faster recovery as opposed to open surgery.
Those who have larger hemorrhoids or in cases where the symptoms have not subsided, surgical treatment options may be advised. Hence, a doctor who specializes in piles (gastroenterologist or proctologist) must be consulted.
