Piles also called haemorrhoids. Piles is a tissue of the anus is rich in blood vessels. Piles are incredibly common - at least 50 per cent of people suffer with them at some time. Piles are common. In the USA, the prevalence is about 4.4%. These may be associated with pain, bleeding, itching and feeling as if a lump or bump is hanging down. Piles look like round pink swellings, the size of a pea or a grape. Sometimes they are a blue colour. Piles can be internal, inside the anus, or external, and be seen and felt on the outside of the anus. You can have internal and external piles at the same time. It is estimated that approximately one half of all Americans have had this condition by the age of 50, and that 50% to 85% of the worlds population will be affected by hemorrhoids at some time in their life. The causes of hemorrhoids include genetic predisposition (weak rectal vein walls and/or valves), straining during bowel movements, and too much pressure on the rectal veins due to poor muscle tone or poor posture. Hypertension , particularly in the portal vein , can also cause hemorrhoids because of the connections between the portal vein and the vena cava which occur in the rectal wall - known as portocaval anastomoses. Liver disease can also cause increased pressure in the veins and also cause hemorrhoids.
Piles prevalence peaks between 45 and 65 years of age. The most common symptoms of Piles is fistulae, abscesses, or irritation and itching (pruritus ani) and painful bleeding. People whose parents had Piles may be more likely to get them. Pregnant women often get Piles because of the strain from carrying the baby and from giving birth. Symptoms of external Piles may include painful swelling or a hard lump around the anus that results when a blood clot forms. This condition is known as a thrombosed external Piles. In addition, excessive straining, rubbing, or cleaning around the anus may cause irritation with bleeding and/or itching, which may produce a vicious cycle of symptoms. Draining mucus may also cause itching. Medical treatment of Piles is aimed initially at relieving symptoms. Over-the-counter corticosteroid creams can reduce pain and swelling.
