Hemorrhoids are swollen veins that are found in the lowest region of your rectum and anus. Some of the time, the walls of these blood vessels stretch so far apart that the veins show signs of inflammation or irritation, particularly when you excrete. Swollen hemorrhoids are likewise called piles.
One of the most widely recognized reasons for rectal bleeding is the presence of Hemorrhoids. They're seldom risky and generally clear up in a short period of time; however you should seek consultation from your doctor to ensure, that it isn't anything critical.
Internal hemorrhoids are caused for the most part because of the strain experienced when passing stool. The internal piles can be felt inside the rectum. Internal Hemorrhoids can be described as blood clotting in the varicose veins of the inner rectal region. One of the primary symptoms is the occurrence of blood stains in the stool.
Moreover, it is not entirely necessary that every occurrence of blood in the stool is a case of internal hemorrhoid. If such a condition occurs, always consult a physician before assuming something is wrong or self-diagnosis. Sometimes, internal hemorrhoids swell to such an extent that the lumps protrude out of the anus. This occurrence is named, "Prolapsed internal hemorrhoids", which may mislead you to believe that it is external hemorrhoids.
Hemorrhoids or Piles, no matter if internal or external is a reason for pain or discomfort. External Hemorrhoids or Piles can be easily identified by inspecting the outer region of the anus(there could be excess growth or swelling), if there is a fleshy growth near the anus, it is most likely an indication of External Hemorrhoids.
There is a high chance that internal piles (the type that lumps out of the anus) could be mistaken for external Hemorrhoids. It is crucial to identify the type of Hemorrhoids. External Hemorrhoids can occur due to straining of the veins in the anal opening, either while passing stool, while lifting heavy objects or due to pregnancy where the uterus puts pressure on the veins.
Constipation usually occurs when the feces or stool is hard, small or “pellet sized” and it requires great physical effort before it is passed. Under such force, the abdominal muscles contract, a deep breath is held as the diaphragm is forced downward and this creates strong internal abdominal pressures which may affect the varicose veins in the rectal region, in the process of expelling the stool out of the colon.
Hemorrhoids and Constipation can occur in cycles, if any of the two is left untreated, since difficulty in passing stool can put pressure on the rectum, thus triggering hemorrhoids or hemorrhoids can cause constipation due to blockage of the anus.
