What Are Haemorrhoids?
Haemorrhoids are also commonly known as piles. It refers to the inflammation of the anal canal resulting in swelling and discomfort. The inflammation can start inside the anus but the inflamed parts can make their way out of the anus and cause pain to the patient. These are considered internal haemorrhoids. External haemorrhoids, on the other hand, are blood clots around the edge of the anal opening. This happens rarely thus, only a few people experience it.
The term haemorrhoids refers to the overarching condition, but there are many types. Internal haemorrhoids are the most common where the swelling occurs about 2 to 4 cm above the anal opening. This means you will not be able to see or feel them and the only sign you will notice is bleeding.
Internal haemorrhoids can develop into external haemorrhoids. When the swollen parts make their way out of the anal opening, it can now be considered external and this can be more painful. Internal haemorrhoids are assessed according to their degree.
There are 4 different degrees. It starts with the first degree that is characterised by very mild symptoms that you can’t see or feel up to the fourth degree which is characterised by severe symptoms such as external lumps that can’t be pushed back into the anus.
Internal haemorrhoids that started externally are different from external haemorrhoids. This happens rarely and occurs because of the blood clots underneath the surface of the skin around the anus. It might be challenging to identify external haemorrhoids compared to fourth-degree internal haemorrhoids. Both are likely to be more painful and irritated.
Most of the time, people with haemorrhoids or piles don’t notice any symptoms so it lasts for longer periods without them knowing. For symptomatic people, they will notice blood after passing a stool. It can also be accompanied by itching, anal discharge, soreness and feeling of needing to pass stool even after you already have. Going to the doctor for a check-up on these symptoms is crucial because it can also present as symptoms of more serious illnesses such as Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis or bowel cancer.
What Causes Haemorrhoids?
The exact culprit of haemorrhoids is not yet clear although it is thought to be related to high pressure in the blood vessels around the anus. This elevated pressure causes swelling and inflammation which can be irritated by clothing or passing stools.
This pressure increases because of certain triggers. The most common trigger is constipation due to the added strain on the rectum. Other triggers for haemorrhoids also include chronic diarrhoea, pregnancy, overweight and sitting down for prolonged periods. However, sitting on cold surfaces is not proven to be a cause for piles.
When you start suffering from haemorrhoids, there is a high risk of experiencing it again because of genetics or recurring risk factors like being overweight.
