Unfortunately, hemorrhoids are an unsightly problem. They are located on one of the least-talked-about parts of our bodies, which means they don’t get talked about as often as they should. However, while out-of-sight, out-of-mind may seem like an appropriate perspective, it certainly is not an option for those who suffer from them.
What are Hemorrhoids?
Hemorrhoids, more colloquially known as piles, occur when the veins in your anus and lower rectum become swollen or inflamed. They either develop inside the rectum or under the skin around the anus. They can be an embarrassing problem to address, but they can also cause a lot of pain and discomfort. Some of the symptoms may include painless bleeding during bowl movements (although bleeding may also be an indicator of colorectal or anal cancer along with a number of other diseases. It’s a good idea to get checked out by a doctor if you experience any indication of rectal bleeding), itching or irritation, pain (from moderate to severe) or discomfort, swelling, a lump near your anus which may be sensitive or painful, or fecal leakage.
What are their causes?
While it may not seem to be the case, given the lack of conversation, hemorrhoids are a common ailment. Approximately half the adult population will have had to deal with hemorrhoids by the time they reach 50. They can result from a number of causes, including straining during bowel movements, low-fiber diets, sitting on the toilet for long periods of time, chronic diarrhea, constipation, anal intercourse, and obesity. Women may experience hemorrhoids during pregnancy due to increased pressure on the veins in the rectum, and hemorrhoids become a lot more common as we age because the tissues that support our rectal veins becomes weakened and may stretch.
While there are preventative strategies and lifestyle modifications that may help in the prevention of hemorrhoids, these techniques do not always work for everyone. If this is the case, then it is important to talk to your doctor about which hemorrhoid treatment is right for you. In severe cases, like in instances of blood clots or severe and persistent hemorrhoids, your doctor may recommend a few different minimally invasive procedures; however, if you are suffering from external hemorrhoids, there are also a few over-the-counter creams and ointments that can aid in relief.
