Hemorrhoids, How Can You Quickly Remove Them?

Patient Consults With Doctor

What are hemorrhoids?

A hemorrhoid is a blood vessel with many veins in the rectal area. It is known as hemorrhoids when they swell and protrude out through the anus. They usually occur in the rectal area due to increased pressure when pushing or straining.

What are the different types of hemorrhoids?

There are four grades, according to their severity:

1st-grade – protrusion that can be pushed back in easily

2nd-grade – protrusion that cannot be pushed back in and needs to be removed

3rd-grade – they burst inside of the rectal canal

4th-grade – they already burst and is hemorrhaging inside of the rectal canal

All piles usually start as 1st-grade then progress into 2nd or 3rd grades if they are not treated on time. The different types include internal piles, which occur under the mucous membrane of the rectum. It is also known as rectal cushions. External piles occur under the skin around the anus and cannot be pushed back into place.

What are external hemorrhoid symptoms?

External hemorrhoids usually cause pain and itchiness around the perianal area, including swelling. External pile symptoms include irritation, discomfort, and pain when you pass stool or during bowel movements.

There can be manual pressure to decrease pain, but this is not always successful in removing. If they are very itchy, they might have small swelling on the skin around the piles. Symptoms are itching, irritation, and discomfort on the perianal area, constant or occasional.

What causes external hemorrhoids?

They are usually caused by excessive pressure. This can happen due to pregnancy, obesity, heavy lifting, straining during bowel movements, and sitting for long periods. They are also more common in people with chronic constipation or diarrhea, which are both conditions known for putting pressure on piles and other veins.

How do you remove external hemorrhoids?

The best way to remove them is via hemorrhoidectomy, the most common surgical procedure for removal. It consists of eliminating rectal tissue.

Hemorrhoidectomy can be done as an open hemorrhoidectomy when doctors cut the rectal tissue and remove it directly. They are then left to heal on their own. This procedure leaves two surgical scars around the anus.

What are internal hemorrhoid symptoms?

Internal Hemorrhoids usually cause bleeding during bowel movements. The first symptom is bright red blood on toilet paper after passing stool. If they increase in size, they can cause pain, discomfort, and bowel blockage. Symptoms also include stools that are hard to pass since they can clog up the anal canal.

What causes internal hemorrhoids?

They form in the rectal veins when intestinal pressure is high—straining when passing stool usually causes them to swell up with blood and clog up the anal canal. The symptoms of piles are bleeding during bowel movement, bright red bleeding on toilet paper or in the bowel, pain during bowel movements, or pain before and after a bowel movement. They are caused by increased pressure on the rectal cushions. This can happen due to pregnancy, obesity, chronic constipation or diarrhea, and sitting for long periods.

How do you remove internal hemorrhoids?

Surgery is the best way for removal. The rectal cushions are cut to relieve pain, bleeding, and discomfort when having bowel movements. There are two types of surgery that can be done to remove them, hemorrhoidectomy which consists of cutting the rectal tissue directly with an incision, and hemorrhoidopexy, which consists of tying rectal tissue together with a midline incision. Hemorrhoidectomy and hemorrhoidopexy are the two most common types of removal.

If your hemorrhoids are external, there is nothing that can be done, but if they’re internal, you are in luck.
