Hemorrhoid surgery

What are hemorrhoids?

Hemorrhoids are swollen veins in the lower rectum and anus. Mostly malnutrition, lack of physical activity, obesity, and struggling as a result of constipation can cause hemorrhoids. In some cases they may become inflammatory, enlarged, bloody, and turned out, causing pain and further complaints. Severe hemorrhoids lead to further complaints and complications without proper treatment (hemorrhoid surgery).

Internal hemorrhoids are painless, but tend to bleed. External hemorrhoids can cause pain.

What are the stages of hemorrhoids?

Healthy eating and regular physical activity is essential to avoid hemorrhoids. The disease has several stages with mild to permanent pain. At early stage, the enlarged nodule is asymptomatic around the anus. At the second stage, during defecation, the nodule protrude beyond the anus and then draw back. In the third stage, the protruding hemorrhoid can cause more pain or bleeding, and won’t draw back by itself, (it can be manually restored). In the fourth stage, the highly sensitive and painful protruding hemorrhoid cannot be restored manually into the anus. In this case, the only treatment of hemorrhoids must be performed by hemorrhoid surgery.

Frequent bowel moments strain and expand the veins.

In case of obesity, increased abdominal pressure can cause hemorrhoids.
