What Are Hemorrhoids? How Do We Prevent And Treat Them?

Aug 17, 2007
The Encarta dictionary describes them as painful varicose veins in the canal of the anus. It's little wonder then why so many victims of this awful infliction, also known more commonly as piles, choose to suffer in silence.

Quite often anal bleeding is a common symptom of hemorrhoids which can be either internal or external. The internal types are those which cannot be seen and have to be diagnosed by your doctor, whereas the external ones can easily be seen and identified with the naked eye.

Many folks see having piles as extremely embarrassing, and as a consequence a lot of people chose to ignore the problem and hope they will go away on their own. Sometimes this will happen, but it really is ludicrous to drag out something which can be quite often cleared up quickly and easily with over-the-counter treatments.

There are actually quite a number of over the counter hemorrhoids treatment products available and it's important to point out that both the doctor and pharmacist have seen and heard about a lot worse conditions and complaints than a few common piles.

Don't suffer in silence if you think you have hemroids, as it really is unnecessary. Millions of folks have had them before you just as millions more will experience them long after yours have cleared up. Just explain your symptoms specifically and the experts will be able to choose a product which is most appropriate for your condition.

There are many causes of hemorrhoids, but the good news is that most can be easily prevented by changing certain dietary habits and lifestyle. Once again, you will get a proper prognosis from your doctor or pharmacist.

Here are some of the more common causes of hemorrhoids which may help you to prevent future cases if you take the necessary precautions: Straining during a bowel movement is a common cause as it poor diet. Obesity can be a problem just as it is in most health issues in the modern world. Pregnant women can sometimes be susceptible to hemorrhoids. Lack of exercise (also linked to obesity), constipation (linked to diet), and sitting and straining on the toilet for prolonged periods of time also contribute to the development of hemorrhoids

There are more causes, but the above mentioned are among the most common. Sometimes, some people will suffer with painful piles no matter what they do to try and prevent them, but the good news is there are many products available which both relieve the pain and irritation, and cure the hemorrhoids altogether.

Don't suffer in silence, as hemorrhoids are often very easily treatable so long as you catch them at the early stages of the condition.
