What is Piles?

Piles, also known as Haemorrhoids or Bawaseer, are swollen and inflamed vascular structures in and around the rectum and the anus, which can cause discomfort and bleeding. Hemorrhoids are a very common disease that can affect men or women of any age. These are caused by continuous high pressure in the veins. Other causes include constipation, overexertion during bowel movements, and persistent diarrhea. These swellings are usually rounded, discolored, and small bumps. Patients may feel these lumps in the anus which can be very painful and even bleed from any type of injury.

Symptoms of Piles

  • Bleeding while passing stools
  • Feeling of sore or itching
  • Discomfort and pain after passing stools
  • Swelling in anal region
  • A lump around or in the anus
  • Slimy mucus discharge from the anus
  • Feeling of constipation

Causes of Piles

  • Chronic constipation and diarrhea
  • Poor low-fiber diet and lifestyle habits
  • Obesity
  • Straining during passing stools
  • Pregnancy
  • Anal intercourse
  • The tissues in the anus get weak with aging 
  • often lifting heavy objects
  • sitting on the toilet for too long

Types of Piles

Hemorrhoids are classified into two categories:

  • Internal hemorrhoids

Internal hemorrhoids found in the lining of the rectum. These types of hemorrhoids are usually painless and can go away on their own. Due to the size of internal hemorrhoids, patients may feel discomfort. Larger internal hemorrhoids can cause symptoms such as pain, itching, or burning.

  • External hemorrhoids

External hemorrhoids are found under the skin around the anus. Usually, these will appear in the anus during defecation and appear as visible or palpable lumps. Most common reports include itching, burning, and pain during activity, sitting, or defecation.

Grades of Hemorrhoids

Who is at risk of piles?

  • Adults between 45 and 65, especially your parents.
  • Because of sitting for long hours, postural pressure and pain can occur
  • Being Obese

When to see a doctor?

Most people are too embarrassed about discussing anorectal disorders which prevents them from getting the right care. But in such conditions, the situation may get worse if not treated properly. In case of any symptoms like bleeding during passing of stools or extreme pain, consult a doctor or a surgeon immediately to confirm the diagnosis of Piles.

Why should pile treatment not be delayed?

  • Anemia: loss of blood for a long time
  • Strangulated hemorrhoid: Cutting off of the blood supply in internal hemorrhoids can cause extreme pain.
  • Passing stools without control
  • Infection 
  • the occurrence of anal fistula. It is a channel which is created between the inside of the anus  and the skin near the anus

Diagnosis Of Piles

  • External hemorrhoids can be visible by observing a medical history followed by visual examination of the anal canal and rectum. A digital examination and Proctoscopy ( a scope is inserted to examine the anal canal ) is also done to confirm the diagnosis. Sometimes a Colonoscopy may be advised if your doctor suspects any other cause of bleeding that needs to be inspected out.
  • Piles Treatment / Surgery :
  • Most patients can manage their hemorrhoids with non-surgical techniques. They prefer non-operative treatment more because it gives less pain and fewer complications than operative treatment. If hemorrhoids are treated early, there is no need for surgery.
  • Surgical treatments include:
  • Hemorrhoidectomy: A surgery to remove hemorrhoids which are very severe.
  • Stapled haemorrhoidopexy: this procedure uses a stapling device to remove hemorrhoidal tissue. 
  • Haemorrhoidal artery ligation: A safe and effective procedure where stitches are used to cut the blood supply to your piles to make them shrink.

Prevention of Piles

The prevention of Piles can be done by taking some precautions as listed below:

  • Eating a high-fibre diet
  • Drinking lots of fluids
  • Avoid straining while passing stools
  • Avoid holding stools for very long 
  • Exercising regularly
  • Avoid sitting in the toilet seats for a long time
  • Take a warm water bath to reduce itching and pain.
  • Always clean and dry your bottom.
  • Limiting alcohol drinking and caffeine items to avoid constipation.
