Piles / Haemorrhoids

Piles, or haemorrhoids, are actually inflamed blood vessels around the anus that occur due to overstraining during bowel movements or after pregnancy in women. Excessive straining may cause these engorged anal cushions to be pushed out and lead to bleeding during defecation.

Over long periods of time, the elasticity of the supporting tissues is weakened and it becomes increasingly difficult for these enlarged blood vessels to return to their original positions in the anal canal, leading to formation of external piles.
