What are Hemorrhoids?

Hemorrhoids are also known as piles, is commonly misspelled as "hemroids", and refer to a condition in which the veins and tissues around the lower rectum and anus become swollen and inflamed. Hemorrhoids are itchy, cause pain, and bleed.
When there is pressure on the walls of the rectum, the muscles that support the hemorrhoidal vessels are weakened. These vessels become enlarged and lose their support.
The result is a sac-like protrusion of dilated veins inside the rectal canal called internal hemorrhoids, or under the skin around the anus called external hemorrhoids.
Types of Hemorrhoids

Internal Hemorrhoids
Internal hemorrhoids are located high up in the anal canal and are not visible. The most common symptom of internal hemorrhoids is bleeding.
If internal hemorrhoids push through the anal opening while straining during a bowel movement, this is called a prolapsed hemorrhoid. It is painful and often difficult to push back into the rectum.

External Hemorrhoids
External hemorrhoids occur outside the anus and are visible. They are enlarged veins covered by skin and are blue in appearance. They are often not accompanied by symptoms.
However, when they are inflamed, they become red, tender, and can bleed. Blood clots can sometimes form inside an external hemorrhoid.
When this happens, it is called a thrombosed external hemorrhoid. This type of hemorrhoid is a firm, tender mass in the anal area, usually as small as a pea, and causes severe pain.
