Piles, also known as haemorrhoids, are swollen blood vessels which may be inside the anus or outside the anus. The internal piles are more common. Sometimes, the haemorrhoidal veins that are located in lowest part of rectum and anus, swell such that the vein walls become thin, stretched and irritated by passing bowel movements.

Types of haemorrhoids

Generally, piles are classified into two categories which are explained below:

1. Internal haemorrhoids

Internal haemorrhoids are haemorrhoids that occur inside the rectum, which we can't see or feel them. Usually they don't hurt, but sometimes they enlarge, or protrude outside the anal sphincter. This enlarged haemorrhoids may hurt when they become irritated by rubbing from sitting or clothing.

2. External haemorrhoids

External haemorrhoids are the small lumps which are located on the outside edge of the anus. These are known as perianal hematoma. If a blood clot is formed inside, then it can be very painful or itchy and this haemorrhoids is known as thrombosed external haemorrhoid.

Causes of piles

Piles can affect anyone in any age. Usually, it is common in elder people and pregnant women. The exact cause of piles is not known. It is likely that inflamed veins can develop due to extreme pressure in the abdomen. Obesity, sitting or standing for long periods, coughing, sneezing, pregnancy, straining on the toilet and vomiting are some of the factors that causes abdominal pressure. Lack of exercise and stress may also be responsible for this piles.

Symptoms of piles

The symptoms of piles are listed below:

  • Presence of lump or painful swelling near the anus
  • Pain while passing bowel
  • Itching around the anus
  • Bleeding from the anus
  • A mucus discharge from anus

Role of diet on piles

Healthy diet and healthy lifestyle helps to maintain overall health of the body. Diet plays an important role in causing or preventing piles. People who prefer high fibre diet are at lower risk of piles as compared to those who prefer diet rich in processed foods. Low fibre diet can cause constipation which in turn leads to abdominal pressure and hence can contribute to piles. Constipation can be prevented by including high fibre diet in your meals. Include vegetables, fruits, nuts, whole grains and processed foods as little as possible in your meals and snacks. Drink at least 8 glasses of water daily. If you are living in hot climate, then you should drink more glasses of water. Avoid excess salt in the diet as excess salt results in swelling in all veins.

Need for exercise

Regular Exercise is important for everyone in order to stay healthy and disease free. Exercise helps in keeping our weight in check and enhances the muscle tone. It decreases the chances of constipation and hence decreases the risk of piles.

Complications of piles

Piles can sometimes lead to long term blood loss and hence result in anemia. Piles can lead to stangulated hemorrhoid. Stangulated hemorrhoid is a condition in which the blood supply to an internal haemorrhoid is cut off. This results in severe pain and sometimes death of tissue (gangrene).
