Facts and Cause of Hemorrhoids
If you have had several episodes of diarrhea or you missed your regular daily bowel movement by several days, or if you are pregnant and overweight and would sit eight hours a day in your office and have no time for exercise, then you can be a good candidate for hemorrhoids.
Hemorrhoids are brought about by the pressure that is exerted on the walls where pressure is needed to be exerted at all. Normally, the body’s gastrointestinal tract would work through the movement of muscles called peristalsis, from the throat up to the anus.
If peristalsis won’t work in the anus or rectum due to too much pressure, the veins will go out of their way and create an inflamed portion that are now called hemorrhoids.
Hemorrhoids can either be internal or external. Internal hemorrhoids or the ones that developed within the rectal walls can be not that much painful but has the tendency to bleed during passing of stool and can go out of the rectum too. They usually go back on their own but sometimes the human has to push it back.
If it becomes too irritating, it can be removed via surgery. The other one is external hemorrhoid which bulges on the anus lining. This is the more painful one and when so much inflamed can turn purplish or reddish that can be alarming. Good thing both hemorrhoids are not life threatening. But you would want to have knowledge on hemorrhoid relief so that these will not bother your world.
