What causes Haemorrhoids/Piles?
It is thought that haemorrhoids form due to increased pressure in the blood vessels around the area of the anus. This pressure leads to the blood vessels becoming swollen and inflamed. Haemorrhoids can be internal or external, depending on where the swollen veins are located.
What are the symptoms of Haemorrhoids/Piles
Haemorrhoids can sometimes be unnoticed. When symptoms are noticeable they usually include bleeding (usually bright red) after passing a stool, an itchy bottom, a lump around the anus, a discharge of mucus, or soreness/redness and swelling around the anus.
