Hemorrhoids, also known as piles, are veins that have become swollen, which are typically caused by rectal bleeding. The walls of these irritated blood vessels can be stretched thinner than normal, causing them to bulge and become larger.
There are many different ways to treat hemorrhoids, ranging from simple changes in lifestyle habits and diet, to more advanced procedures. Medications may also be procured by your doctor if you are only experiencing mild discomfort.
