What are Hemorrhoids/Piles?
The rectum is the end part of the large intestine that further ends up by attaching to the anus (opening at the end of the digestive tract from which bowel stools passes out of the body). Piles medically named as Hemorrhoids are swollen veins in the anus portion or lower rectum which causes pain and bleeding when the stool passes out. There are two types of Hemorrhoids/Piles which can be classified as internal piles and external piles.
Types of Hemorrhoids/Piles
Internal piles occur inside the lower rectum which eventually may protrude or prolapse out through the alimentary canal. Most prolapsed Hemorrhoids shrinks back and travel inside the rectum on their own. This type of piles can't be seen with naked eyes but they may infrequently or continuously cause uneasiness even while sitting.
During the bowel movement when straining happens it might harm the lump and can lead to bleeding while sometimes it can push internal hemorrhoid out through the anal opening. Internal piles can result in unbearable pain and uncontrollable irritation and in rare cases, these Hemorrhoids/Piles may protrude permanently inside the rectum and require medical treatment.
|Grade I Piles||Piles are in internal canal. There is no protrusion||Bleeding||Grade I piles can be treated by medicines & ointments.|
|Grade II Piles||Piles are in internal canal and it usually slid down with every bowel movement||Irritation and bleeding may occur||Grade II piles can be treated by medicines & ointments.|
|Grade III Piles||The hemorrhoid may protrude past the anal verge. Stage III piles requires the patient to push them inside manually.||Increased irritation, bleeding. And protrusion of mass during defecation||Surgery|
|Grade IV Piles||The internal hemorrhoid is always protruded or prolapsed and is at risk for thrombosis and can’t be pushed back.||Itching, bleeding and pain may occur||Surgery|
This type of piles is formed under the skin around the anus that causes extreme itchiness and bleeding while passing the stools. At times, this blood can be collected which later on form a clot/thrombus near the areas of the opening of the alimentary canal causing severe pain, swelling and inflammation. Clotted piles usually do not form serious issues as if the pain caused by these are unbearable, the blood clot can be removed with surgical treatments to relieve the symptoms.
The most common symptom with internal Hemorrhoids/Piles condition is drops of bright red blood appears when comes on the stool with the bowel movement.
