Factors leading to Haemorrhoids

Haemorrhoids can affect any person, any time. they are of common occurrence. There are different causes of haemorrhoid.Read on to know about the causes.

What causes haemorrhoids

Haemorrhoids, which are normal structures present at the upper part of the anal canal, are supported by two tissues.  Constant pressure on this tissue (for example, straining when constipated or due to age) tends to degenerate the tissue. As a result the haemorrhoids tend to distend.  Because of lack of support the haemorrhoids become swollen (like a balloon filled with water) and are now sensitive to injury.  Constant rubbing by the hard faecal matter leads to bursting of the capillaries and thus leads to bleeding.  As the condition progresses, the connective tissue ruptures and the haemorrhoids become permanently protruded.

What kind of person is most at risk

Haemorrhoids is one condition that can affect any person at any time.  Poor eating habits, irregular bowel movement, frequent changes in lifestyle, excessive travel, prolonged standing or sitting, etc. can all contribute to contracting haemorrhoids.

  • Constipation:  Straining during constipation puts pressure on the veins, which either bleed or protrude outside the rectum.
  • Pregnancy:  Pregnancy is a common cause for haemorrhoids in women.  There is increased pressure in the veins due to the enlarging womb and increased blood volume.
  • Standing or sitting for a long period:  People who tend to stand (for e.g., teachers, factory workers) or sit (for example, office workers) for long periods tend to accumulate blood in the veins, which can lead to haemorrhoids.
  • Overweight:  Being overweight puts extra pressure on the haemorrhoidal veins.
