Piles, also known as hemorrhoids, are swollen and inflamed blood vessels located in the anal and rectal areas. They can occur externally, around the opening of the anus, or internally within the rectum, or. Piles can range from being mildly uncomfortable to quite painful and can sometimes lead to bleeding during bowel movements.




1. Straining during bowel movements: This is a common cause due to constipation or diarrhea, which puts pressure on the blood vessels in the rectal area.
2. Pregnancy: Increased pressure on the pelvic area during pregnancy can lead to the development of piles.
3. Obesity: Excess body weight can contribute to increased pressure in the anal and rectal veins.
4. Sedentary Lifestyle: Sitting for prolonged periods can cause blood to pool in the anal area, leading to swelling.
5. Poor Diet: A diet low in fiber can lead to constipation, which in turn can cause straining during bowel movements.
6. Age: As people age, the tissues supporting the veins in the rectal area may weaken, making piles more likely.

1. Internal Piles:Often painless, they may cause bleeding during bowel movements. In some cases, they may protrude from the anus (prolapse).
2. External Piles:These can be painful and appear as a lump around the anus. They can also bleed if irritated.
