Piles also referred as Haemorrhoids are the swollen veins in and around the anus or rectum. Anal canal contains a network of small veins, these veins get inflamed sometimes due to excess straining on the toilet because of hard stools. While passing bowel movements, walls of these swollen veins become stretched and irritated leading to piles. Few people with piles even experience hemorrhage due to increased pressure in veins. People of all age groups can get affected with piles and is comparatively more common among conceived women and in people over 45 years of age.
Types of Piles
Based on the location, piles are classified into two types namely Internal and External piles. In rare cases, people also develop both internal and external piles at the same time.
Internal Piles- This type of piles develop inside the rectum and one cant see or feel them. These are generally pain free as there are very few pain sensing nerves in the rectum. People in this may face bright red colour discharge due\ring bowel movements.
Internal piles can be classified into 4 grades, namely
- Grade 1– In this stage piles are small swellings present inside the lining of the anus, they are not painful and are not visible.
- Grade 2- These piles are larger when compared to grade 1, they usually pop outside while passing stools but return back inside again.
- Grade 3- In this stage, the piles prolapse outside the anus during bowel movements and you can feel them at this stage. You can push back the lump inside the anus with your finger.
- Grade 4- Piles in this stage permanently hang outside the anus and you can not push them back. These are large when compared to other grades and is considered to be the severe stage.
