                      So What Are The Symptoms Of Hemroids
In this article you will find out the 5 most common symptoms of hemroids. If you experience any of these
symptoms, then it is very likely you have hemorrhoids.
What are hemorrhoids? Below is a basic explanation of what hemorrhoids are.
To put it simply, hemorrhoids are swollen or inflamed veins in or around the anal canal, generally known as
‘piles’. They can look like balls of skin when on the outside (external hemorrhoids) and may vary in color
from deep blue to red that is mixed with the natural color of your skin.
Hemorrhoids are more common in people between the ages of 45-65 but trends have increased amongst
the younger population due to bad lifestyle habits.
It is known that hemroids are present in everyone, but in some unfortunate people they enter into a
pathological state known as piles.
                                              The symptoms of hemroids are such that it is simply not
                                              possible for the person to bear the pain quietly as the pain
                                              associated with hemorrhoids can be quite unbearable.
                                              They are not dangerous and do not endanger lives as they
                                              can get well on their own within days through either lifestyle
                                              changes or consultations with a physician.
                                              The symptoms of hemroids are almost the same for everyone
                                              and they are many. The hemroid symptoms can be quite
                                              shocking at times and a sufferer may easily panic,
                                              unnecessarily so though. Let’s discuss some of them.
1. Bleeding associated with bowel movements
2. Obstruction while passing stools
3. Pain, itching or a burning sensationin of the anal area
4. Swelling or lumps of of the anus area
5. Mucous emissions in stool
These signs and symptoms occur in stages and profuse bleeding is considered the etreme phase. As
discussed earlier the hemroids differ from person to person and may be internal or external.
Symptoms of external hemorrhoids are different from the symptoms of internal hemorrhoids. The symptoms
for external hemorrhoids are more obvious and can be quickly detected.
In this case they appear as lumps near the anal area particularly when in pain, itching or having a burning
Internal hemroids may take more time to detect as they occur within the rectal channel itself. Bleeding is a
sure symptom of internal hemroids. The blood will be bright red in color and will be followed by itching and
pain in the area near the anus.
These symptoms of hemroids may disappear soon after they are developed, but at least the person will be in
great pain and it is very important to consult a physician as soon as possible.
It is always advisable to seek medical attention as soon as the symptoms of hemroids are detected so that
appropriate treatment can be administered appropriately.

                          Thrombosed External Hemorrhoid
                   What are the Symptoms Of Hemroids Really?
If you suffer from hemorrhoids you are likely to only take notice after a few days. In
the beginning you do not really realize that you suffer from hemorrhoids because
this feeling of pain and itching around your anal area is not recognized and you may
think it is just a passing phase.
If you think you suffer from hemorrhoids you may perform a very simple test by just
sliding your finger near the anus to feel if you feel a bump or evidence of blood.
It may often only occur to you after you’ve been to the toilet and suddenly realized blood on the toilet
paper. Severe anal pain may also occur when you sit or lie down.
If you go to the doctor with symptoms of pain and itching around the anus it will often immediately indicate
to him or her that you have hemorrhoids without him or her subjecting you to physical examination.
These are very general symptoms of hemorrhoids. The symptoms of hemorrhoids may at times be very
similar to the symptoms of for example, tumors and infections.
It is therefore important that the treating doctor examines for hemorrhoids effectively. If necessary, the
anal canal should be examined.
External hemorrhoids look like a bump on the edge of the anus. If the lump is soft, it can be a thrombosis.
Any lump should be carefully examined and not assumed to be hemorrhoids until effectively proven to be.
The diagnosis of an internal hemorrhoid is easy if a rectal examination precedes it. If the internal
hemorrhoid can not be identified using the finger in and around the anal area, there will be need for a
thorough. deeper anal examination. This can be done by means of a anascope.
The anascope is a few inches long to allow it to easily examine the anal tract, which is also a couple of
inches long. Think of it that device that doctors use to examine your ears.
The only major difference is that with the anascope the anus is moisturised with a special lubricant so that
it can accomodate the device a bit more comfortably.
Whether or not hemorrhoids are found, whenevr there’s anal bleeding the entire anal canal must be
examined as bleeding from the anus may also be a sign of major problems like cancer, or infection of the
Hemorrhoids Symptoms
A precise definition of hemorrhoids does not exist but they can best be described as massive “nuggets” of
meaty cushions inside the anal canal that contain blood vessels.
The anal canal is nothing more than the last 4 centimeters of the digestive system where your stool passes
to the outside world. The anus is the opening of this canal to the outside.
