What are Haemorrhoids

What are Haemorrhoids

Haemorrhoids  are common in adults. They are bundle of veins which get swollen and bleed. They are self healing and do not need medication. In extreme cases they may have to be removed by surgery.

What are haemorrhoids

If you see blood in the stools, you need not get unnecessarily worried.  You may be suffering from haemorrhoids.  Haemorrhoids are a bundle of veins in the rectum, which get swollen and bleed.  Haemorrhoids may form on the inside or just at the opening of the anal canal.  Accordingly, they are called internal or external haemorrhoids.

Need I get worried about haemorrhoids

Haemorrhoids are very common.  One out of four adults suffer from this condition.  In fact, half the population over the age of 50 years suffers from haemorrhoids.  Most haemorrhoidal attacks are self-curing and symptoms disappear within 7 to 10 days.  As the condition worsens you may suffer 4 to 6 episodes in a year.  This causes considerable blood loss and may lead to anaemia (specially in women).  Sometimes, haemorrhoids protrude out of the anal canal and in such cases, your doctor might recommend surgery.
