Piles also known as Hemorrhoids ((HEM-uh-roids), are swollen veins in your anus. Lower rectum, similar to voricose veins. Hemorrhoids can develop inside the rectum (internal hemorrhoids) or under the skin around the anus (external hemorrhoids).

    Signs and symptoms if hemorrhoids usually depends on the type of hemorrhoids, which includes:


    These are under the skin around your anus. Signs and symptoms might include:

    1.Itching or irritation in your anal region.

    2.Pain or discomfort swelling around your anus bleeding.


    Internal hemorrhoids lie inside the rectum. You usually can't see or feel them, and they rarely cause discomfort. But straining or irritation when passing stool can cause:

    1.Painless bleeding during bowel movements.

    2.You might notice small amount of bright red blood on your toilet tissue or in the toilet.

    3.A hemorrhoid to push through the anal opens (prolapsed or protruding hemorrhoid), resulting in pain and irritation.

    4.Thrombosed hemorrhoids. If blood pools in external hemorrhoids and form a clot (thrombus), it can result in:

    1.Severe pain 



    4.A hard lump near your anus


    The best way to prevent hemorrhoids is to keep your stools soft, so they pass easily. To prevent hemorrhoids and reduce symptoms of hemorrhoids, follow these tips:

    ▪️ Eat high-fiber foods. Eat more fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Doing so softens the stool and increases its bulk, which will help you avoid the straining that can cause hemorrhoids.

    ▪️ Drink plenty of fluids. Drink six to eight glasses of water and other liquids (not alcohol) each day to help keep stools soft.

    ▪️ Don't strain. Straining and holding your breath when trying to pass a stool creates greater pressure in the veins in the lower rectum.

    ▪️ Go as soon as you feel the urge. If you wait to pass a bowel movement and the urge goes away, your stool could dry out and be harder to pass.

    ▪️Exercise. Stay active to help prevent constipation and to reduce pressure on veins, which can occur with long periods of standing or sitting. Exercise can also help you lose excess weight that might be contributing to your hemorrhoids.

    ▪️Avoid long periods of sitting. Sitting too long, particularly on the toilet, can increase the pressure on the veins in the anus.
