Hemorrhoids (Piles) are swollen or inflamed veins in the anus and lower rectum that can be itchy, painful, and potentially cause bleeding during bowel movements.They can be located both externally or internally, and affect about half of adults over the age of 50.
According to the Mayo Clinic, there are two types of hemorrhoids, internal and external.
External hemorrhoids are under the skin around your anus. When irritated, external hemorrhoids can itch or bleed.
Internal hemorrhoids lie inside the rectum. You usually can’t see or feel these hemorrhoids, and they usually don’t cause discomfort.
