Hemorrhoids are prolapsed and inflamed veins in the rectum. Hemorrhoids form from a group of veins in the rectum known as the hemorrhoidal plexus. That is where the name hemorrhoids is derived.There are two groups of veins: internal veins and external veins.

There are also two types of hemorrhoids and they are classified according to there location. When the internal veins are the problem then they are classified as internal hemorrhoids . They are classified as external hemorrhoids when the external veins are the ones affected.

The symptoms may be slightly different for the two types of hemorrhoids. Internal hemorrhoids many times don’t cause symptoms. They manifest themselves mainly as bleeding.

People with internal hemorrhoids may not manifest any symptoms. But they may be scared to death when they see blood in the toilet after a bowel movement. Sometimes large amounts of bright red blood is seen but many times just a streak of blood is seen on the stool.

Warning: This can be a symptom of cancer also, so please consult your doctor for a complete evaluation.

Signs and Symptoms present mostly in the external form of hemorrhoids are:

  • Bleeding after bowel movement or noticed while wiping the anal area
  • Pain and swelling to the point where it can make walking difficult
  • Itching and irritation around the anal area
  • Hemorrhoids protruding from your anus
  • A Sensitive and painful lump near your anus
  • Fecal Leakage

What Causes Hemorrhoids?

Life-style factors are usually the cause in the development of hemorrhoids. Some of these are:

1. Low amounts of fiber in the diet

2. Straining during a bowel movement

3. Obesity

4. Constipation

5. Lack of Exercise

But the thing is, you can prevent and improve hemorrhoids by modifying these life-style factors but many times you cannot correct them completely after they have developed.  These measures are necessary to prevent hemorrhoids and improve them but will not cure them completely.  If you are suffering from hemorrhoids you need to  modify these factors but you also need extra help to get rid of hemorrhoids completely.

Treatment options vary in the conventional and alternative medicine field. There is a great variety of suppositories, creams and ointments in the market for the relief of hemorrhoids. Understand that these only will help in relieving symptoms. They DO NOT CURE HEMORRHOIDS!

Surgery is the method of choice to correct hemorrhoids in medicine but many times two thing may happen. One that is very litle known is that even after surgery these Hemorrhoids can COME BACK!! And number two is that you have to have a good insurance plan since the procedure is very expensive.
