What are haemorrhoids?

Haemorrhoids are swollen, enlarged veins that form inside and outside of your anus and rectum. They can be painful and uncomfortable and cause rectal bleeding. Haemorrhoids are also called piles. We’re all born with haemorrhoids, but at baseline, they don’t bother us. It’s only when they become swollen and enlarged that they produce irritating symptoms.

How common are haemorrhoids?

An estimated 1 in 20 persons has symptomatic haemorrhoids. They affect people of all ages, sexes, races and ethnicities. They’re more common as you age, affecting more than half of people over age 50.

Who might get haemorrhoids?

Anyone can get symptomatic haemorrhoids, even teenagers. (But because haemorrhoids take a while to develop, they’re uncommon in children.) You may be more at risk if you:

  • Have overweight/obesity.
  • Are pregnant.
  • Eat a low-fibre diet.
  • Have chronic constipation or diarrhoea.
  • Regularly lift heavy objects.
  • Spend a lot of time sitting on the toilet.
  • Strain while having bowel movements.


What are the types of hemorrhoids?

Haemorrhoids can happen inside or outside of your rectum. The type depends on where the swollen vein develops. Types include:

  • External: Swollen veins form underneath the skin around your anus. Your anus is the canal where your poop comes out. External haemorrhoids can be itchy and painful. Occasionally, they bleed. Sometimes, they fill with blood that can clot. This isn’t dangerous but can result in pain and swelling.
  • Internal: Swollen veins form inside your rectum. Your rectum is the part of your digestive system that connects your colon (large intestine) to your anus. Internal haemorrhoids may bleed, but they usually aren’t painful.
  • Prolapsed: Both internal and external haemorrhoids can prolapse, meaning they stretch and bulge outside of your anus. These haemorrhoids may bleed or cause pain.


What’s the difference between haemorrhoids and anal fissures?

Haemorrhoids and anal fissures cause similar symptoms, such as itching, pain and bleeding. While swollen veins cause haemorrhoids, a tear in the lining of your anus causes an anal fissure. A healthcare provider will do a physical exam and may order tests to find what’s causing your symptoms.


What causes haemorrhoids?

Straining puts pressure on veins in your anus or rectum, causing haemorrhoids. You might think of them as varicose veins that affect your bottom.

Any sort of straining that increases pressure on your belly or lower extremities can cause anal and rectal veins to become swollen and inflamed. Hemorrhoids may develop due to:

  • Pelvic pressure from weight gain, especially during pregnancy.
  • Pushing hard to have a bowel movement (poop) because of constipation.
  • Straining to lift heavy objects or weightlifting.


What are the symptoms of haemorrhoids?

Internal haemorrhoids rarely cause pain (and typically can’t be felt) unless they prolapse. Many people with internal hemorrhoids don’t know they have them because they don’t have symptoms.

If you have symptoms of internal haemorrhoids, you might see blood on toilet paper, in your stool or in the toilet bowl. These are signs of rectal bleeding.

Signs of external haemorrhoids include:

  • Itchy anus.
  • Hard lumps near your anus that feel sore or tender.
  • Pain or ache in your anus, especially when you sit.
  • Rectal bleeding.


Prolapsed haemorrhoids can be painful and uncomfortable. You may be able to feel them bulging outside of your anus and gently push them back inside.


What other conditions cause haemorrhoid-type symptoms?

Different gastrointestinal disorders can cause rectal bleeding and other symptoms similar to hemorrhoids. Some of these disorders are life-threatening. For this reason, it’s important to let a healthcare provider know when you’re having symptoms.

Bowel diseases that can cause bleeding include:

  • Colon cancer.
  • Crohn’s disease.
  • Ulcerative colitis.


How are haemorrhoids diagnosed?

A healthcare provider diagnoses haemorrhoids based on symptoms and a physical exam. You may also have:

  • Digital rectal exam: Your provider inserts a gloved, lubricated finger into your rectum to feel for swollen veins.
  • Anoscopy: Your provider uses an anoscope (lighted tube) to view the lining of your anus and rectum.
  • Sigmoidoscopy: Your provider uses a sigmoidoscope (lighted tube with a camera) to view the lower (sigmoid) part of your colon and rectum. Procedure types include flexible sigmoidoscopy and rigid sigmoidoscopy (proctoscopy).


These tests may be uncomfortable but aren’t painful. They typically take place in a doctor’s office or outpatient center without anesthesia. You go home the same day.

Your provider may perform a colonoscopy to confirm findings from other tests or check for signs of colon cancer. This outpatient procedure requires anaesthesia.


What are the complications of hemorrhoids?

Hemorrhoids can be uncomfortable and painful, but they don’t tend to cause serious problems. Rarely, people with haemorrhoids develop:

  • Anemia.
  • Blood clots in external haemorrhoids.
  • Infection.
  • Skin tags (flap of tissue that hangs off skin).
  • Strangulated haemorrhoids (muscles in the anus cut off blood flow to a prolapsed internal haemorrhoid).


How do healthcare providers treat haemorrhoids?

You should see your healthcare provider if symptoms get worse or interfere with your daily life or sleep. Also, seek help if signs don’t improve after a week of at-home treatments. Your provider may treat haemorrhoids with:

  • Rubber band ligation: A small rubber band placed around the base of the haemorrhoid cuts off blood supply to the vein.
  • Electrocoagulation: An electric current stops blood flow to a hemorrhoid.
  • Infrared coagulation: A small probe inserted into the rectum transmits heat to get rid of the hemorrhoid.
  • Sclerotherapy: A chemical injected into the swollen vein destroys haemorrhoid tissue.


Surgical treatments include:

  • Hemorrhoidectomy: Surgery removes large external haemorrhoids or prolapsed internal ones.
  • Haemorrhoid stapling: A stapling instrument removes internal haemorrhoids. Or it pulls a prolapsed internal haemorrhoid back inside of your anus and holds it there.


How can I prevent haemorrhoids?

Haemorrhoids are common as you get older. These steps can help prevent hard stools and constipation that can lead to haemorrhoids:

  • Don’t sit too long or push too hard on the toilet.
  • Go to the toilet when the urge hits — don’t delay bowel movements.
  • Drink plenty of water throughout the day.
  • Eat more high-fiber foods (fresh fruits, vegetables and whole grains) or take supplements. Generally, women and people assigned female at birth should aim for 25 grams of fibre per day, while men and people assigned male at birth should get 35 grams of fibre.
  • Stay physically active. Being on the move keeps the bowels moving.
  • Take laxatives or use enemas only as recommended by your healthcare provider. Too many laxatives or enemas can make it hard for your body to regulate how you poop.


When should I call the doctor?

You should call your healthcare provider if you suspect haemorrhoids and experience:

  • Abdominal pain.
  • Chronic constipation or diarrhoea.
  • Fever and chills.
  • Nausea and vomiting.
  • Severe rectal bleeding and pain.
