Description

Piles, also known as haemorrhoids, are swollen veins and muscle around your anus or in your anal canal. Your anal canal is a short, muscular tube with blood vessels that connects your rectum (back passage) with your anus. Piles can develop when this tissue becomes swollen, possibly as a result of straining on the toilet. Sometimes, piles can be painful and bleed if they become damaged.

You can get piles at any age, but they’re most common in people aged between 45 and 65. It’s difficult to know exactly how many people get piles. In the UK, between four and 30 people in every 100 are thought to get piles.

Piles are also common during and after pregnancy. They may develop due to changes in the hormones (chemicals) in your body and the increased pressure in your abdomen (tummy), although doctors aren’t sure. They usually get better once your baby is born.

TYPES OF PILES

Internal piles start inside your anal canal, but they might hang down and so come out your anus. Internal piles can be graded according to whether they come out your anus and – if so – how far they come out.

* First degree piles may bleed but don’t come out of your anus.

* Second degree piles come out of your anus when you have a bowel movement, but go back inside on their own afterwards.

* Third degree piles come out of your anus and only go back inside when you push them in.

* Fourth degree piles are always partly outside your anus and you can’t push them back in. They may become very swollen and painful if the blood inside them clots.

Many people have piles, but the symptoms are not always obvious. Hemorrhoids cause noticeable symptoms for at least 50 percent of people in the United States (U.S.) before the age of 50 years. External piles are swellings that develop further down your anal canal, closer to your anus. They can be very painful, especially if they have a blood clot in them.

SYMPTOMS OF PILES

Piles don’t always cause pain or other symptoms. If you do have symptoms, they can include:

  • bleeding when you have a bowel movement – you may see blood on toilet paper or drips in the toilet or on your faeces
  • a lump in or around your anus
  • a slimy discharge of mucus from your anus, or leaking faeces
  • a feeling that your bowels haven’t emptied completely
  • itchy or sore skin around your anus
  • pain and discomfort after a bowel movement (if you have external piles)
  • A hard, possibly painful lump may be felt around the anus. It may contain coagulated blood. Piles that contain blood are called thrombosed external hemorrhoids.
  • After passing a stool, a person with piles may experience the feeling that the bowels are still full.
  • Bright red blood is visible after a bowel movement.
  • The area around the anus is itchy, red, and sore.
  • Pain occurs during the passing of a stool.

These symptoms may be caused by problems other than piles, such as inflammatory bowel disease, anal cancer, bowel cancer and an anal fissure (tear). If you have any of th
