Common symptoms of piles
Bleeding during bowel movement
As mentioned above as well, seeing bright red blood in the stool or drips in the toilet or in the stool is the first sign that will grab your attention. If the bleeding occurs only once, it is possible that you had a spicy meal. However, if the bleeding occurs for more than two consecutive days, you must see the doctor.
You feel a lump in or around the anus
There are two types of hemorrhoids – internal and external. The latter comes with a swollen lump-like structure in or around your anus that pain excessively while passing the stool. The lump is usually hard and painful that may contain coagulated blood. The lump mostly hangs downwards outside of the anus that might need to be pushed back inside after passing the motion.
Irritation and high-grade pain while passing the motion
If you regularly feel pain and discomfort during a bowel movement, it is possible that you are suffering from internal piles.
Feeling bowels even after excreting out the stools
Most piles patients experience the urge to poop again or feel that the bowels are still full even after passing the motion.
Sore and itchy skin around the anus
Piles necessarily do not always come with a bulging-out lump, but can also have symptoms like sore, red and itchy skin around the anus.
Slimy mucus discharge from the anus after passing the stool
Another prominent symptom of piles is the discharge of mucus after the bowel movements.
Avoiding these symptoms can aggravate the piles and further create complications like blood loss, infection, etc. I suggest you take utmost care of your diet and lifestyle so as to keep piles at bay.
