50% of the population will suffer from hemorrhoids during their lifetime. Hemorrhoids develop when the normal veins surrounding the anus become abnormally enlarged or swollen. There are both external and internal hemorrhoids.
External hemorrhoids rarely cause problems unless a clotted or thrombosed hemorrhoid develops. This complication is painful and you would need prompt medical attention. Internal hemorrhoids can become large, sagging veins that may bulge out of the anus during bowel movements. Your treatment depends on the severity of these prolapsed hemorrhoids as in extreme cases the hemorrhoid will hang out permanently. All bleeding hemorrhoids should be checked by your doctor. The blood will be bright red.
Hemorrhoids have a variety of causes including constipation, straining to pass a stool, standing or sitting for long periods, pregnancy, breathing incorrectly when lifting heavy weights or medical conditions. Along with any hemorrhoid treatment, a high bulk diet, plenty of liquids and good home care will help to heal your hemorrhoids.
