They are clumps, masses, or cushions of tissues of blood vessels, elastic fibers, support tissues, and muscles, which are located in the anal cavity. However, these hemorrhoids become too big when they are inflamed. And, because of this the veins present in the anal walls stretch, become thin and cause irritation while passing bowels. Therefore, this is when piles develop. Generally, piles can go away on its own, but waiting for too long for the treatment can make the condition severe.
