on Tuesday, March 2

Hemorrhoids are enlarged anal veins, the varicose veins. These veins can become stretched so when pushed with extreme force, then break and then bleed. This is called hemorrhoids, and you will cause blood loss, buring, pain, itch, swelling. They are hard to repair because swollen area is difficult to keep clean.

Hemorrhoids may be inside the anus or outside, thus external or internal. With external hemorrhoids you can see and feel them, they are usually a soft bluish-purple lump. The internal hemorrhoids can not be seen as easy and you usually do not know they are there until you find bright read blood in your stool. Another type of hemorrhoid called prolapsed, and is an internal hemorrhoid that collapses and sticks outside the anus. The Prolapsed hemorrhoid can be accompanied by a mucus discharge and heavy bleeding. They can become thrombosed (obstructed by a clot of coagulated {thickened} blood ). They are terribly painful. The most common cause of hemorrhoids is chronic constipation or congested liver.

Other factors that can cause or add to hemorrhoids include obesity (over weight), poor exercise, food allergies (leading to poor diet), lifting heavy objects (straining), and insufficient consumption of dietary fiber(not eating the right foods to keep the bowel soft).

In pregnancy, expecting mothers can develop hemorrhoids from the pressure (weight) of the growing uterus on the anal veins. Constipation in pregnancy can make hemorrhoids more painful, from straining during bowel movement; because this, puts a lot of pressure on the veins around the anus area.
