People above 50 years with very less water intake and improper diet with less fibre diet commonly suffer from the condition known as hemorrhoids or piles. Although the cases are common over the age of 50 it also affect teenagers and elders under 50 years too. Hemorrhoids are the swollen enlarged blood vessels around the anus. It is caused usually due to less fibre content in the food, severe constipation, excessive straining while passing stools or sitting longer time in the toilet for defecation. Other causative factors are frequent lifting of heavy objects, pregnancy and weakness of supporting muscle tissue in the parts around the anus as a part of aging. The swollen veins inside or outside the anus often causes itching and bleeding per rectum. People need to avoid obesity to prevent this disease condition.
Usually hemorrhoids are of two types, there are external and internal haemorrhoids. In external hemorrhoids the vessels beneath the skin around the anus get swollen and lead to the problem but in internal hemorrhoids the vessels within the lining of the anus gets swollen and bleed, leading to lethargy and chronic anaemia. In course of time if the piles are not attended properly it leads to bulging out through the anus which is known as prolapsed hemorrhoids.
As we have discussed, piles are of two types internal and external. In internal hemorrhoids where the blood vessels swell and get inflamed within the lining of rectum or anal canal. The very common presentation is rectal bleeding. They really cause pain also they cannot be felt by the patients unless the pile mass get protrude but in external hemorrhoids the anal region gets itchy. Pains usually accompany the condition while sitting for a prolonged time. We can feel a tender lump near the anal opening. Also bleeding per rectum is present.
Bleeding per rectum is a common sign in many bowel disorders like Crohn’s disease, Ulcerative colitis and Colon cancer. So we have to rule out these conditions with careful history taking and relevant investigations for the proper cure of the disease.
