What are Piles?
Piles are swollen blood vessels in or around the anus and rectum. The haemorrhoidal veins are located in the lowest part of the rectum and the anus. Sometimes they swell so that the vein walls become stretched, thin, and irritated by passing bowel movements. Piles are classified into two general categories: internal and external.
Internal Piles lie far enough inside the rectum that you can’t see or feel them. They don’t usually hurt because there are few pain-sensing nerves in the rectum. Bleeding may be the only sign that they are there. Sometimes internal Piles prolapse, or enlarge and protrude outside the anal sphincter. If so, you may be able to see or feel them as moist, pink pads of skin that are pinker than the surrounding area. Prolapsed Piles may hurt because they become irritated by rubbing from clothing and sitting. They usually recede into the rectum on their own; if they don’t, they can be gently pushed back into place.
External Piles lie within the anus and are often uncomfortable. If an external hemorrhoid prolapses to the outside (usually in the course of passing a stool), you can see and feel it. Blood clots sometimes form within prolapsed external Piles, causing an extremely painful condition called a thrombosis. If an external hemorrhoid becomes thrombosed, it can look rather frightening, turning purple or blue, and could possibly bleed. Despite their appearance, thrombosed Piles are usually not serious and will resolve themselves in about a week. If the pain is unbearable, the thrombosed hemorrhoid can be removed with surgery, which stops the pain.
Causes of Piles
- Anyone at any age can be affected by Piles. They are very common, with about 50% of people experiencing them at some time in their life. However, they are usually more common in elderly people and during pregnancy. Researchers are not certain what causes Piles. “Weak” veins – leading to Piles and other varicose vein – may be inherited.It’s likely that extreme abdominal pressure causes the veins to swell and become susceptible to irritation. The pressure can be caused by obesity, pregnancy, standing or sitting for long periods, straining on the toilet, coughing, sneezing , vomiting ,and holding your breath while straining to do physical labour. DIET has a pivotal role in causing – and preventing – Piles. People who consistently eat a high- fiber diet are less likely to get Piles, but those who prefer a diet high in processed foods are at greater risk of Piles. A low-fiber diet or inadequate fluid intake can cause constipation, which can contribute to Piles in two ways: it promotes straining on the toilet and it also aggravates the Piles by producing hard stools that further irritate the swollen veins.
Symptoms of Piles
- The symptoms of Piles include:
- Bright red bleeding from the anus. Blood may streak the bowel movement or the toilet paper.
- A mass coming out of the rectum
- Tenderness or pain during bowel movements.
- Painful swelling or a lump near the anus.
- Anal itching.
- A mucous anal discharge.
Diagnosis of Piles
Your doctor may be able to see if you have external Piles simply by looking. Tests and procedures to diagnose internal Piles may include:
- Examination of your anal canal and rectum for abnormalities.During a digital rectal exam, your doctor inserts a gloved, lubricated finger into your rectum. He or she feels for anything unusual, such as growths. The exam can give your doctor an indication of what further testing might be appropriate.
- Visual inspection of your anal canal and rectum.Because internal Piles are often too soft to be felt during a rectal examination, your doctor may also examine the lower portion of your colon and rectum with an anoscope, proctoscope or sigmoidoscope. These are scopes that allow your doctor to see into your anus and rectum.
Your doctor may want to do a more extensive examination of your entire colon using colonoscopy.
Treatment of Piles
Treatment for Piles usually involves medications.
Warm Seitz Baths
Sitting in a few inches of warm water three times a day for 15 to 20 minutes may help decrease the inflammation of the Piles. It is important to dry off the anal area completely after each Seitz bath to minimize irritation of the skin surrounding the anus.
Increased fluid intake and dietary fiber (roughage) will decrease the potential for constipation and lessen the pressure on the rectum and anus during a bowel movement, minimizing further swelling, discomfort, and bleeding. Dietary fiber supplements may also help bulk up the stools
Stool softeners may help, but once Piles are present, liquid stools may cause inflammation and infection of the anus
Most prolapsed internal Piles can be pushed back into the anus, but occasionally your health care professional may need to reduce them by gently pushing them with constant pressure.
If the Piles remain swollen and trapped outside the anus and they are not treated, the hemorrhoid tissue may not receive enough blood and can become infected. In such situations, surgery may be required to resolve the problem.
