Going to your general physician for piles treatment can be embarrassing sometimes. But, don’t suffer in silence. There is nothing to feel awkward about it. It is a very common disorder and with treatment, you will be able to manage it, without any further complications.

Also known as haemorrhoids, it is a common condition, which occurs in people who suffer from long-term constipation or diarrhoea. It is also associated with conditions, like irritable bowel syndrome and irritable bowel disease.

Piles make an appearance when the veins present in the anus stretch and swell because of too much pressure applied on it. And, this can lead to pain while passing the stools and even while sitting. So, if you are expecting this disorder to resolve on its own, you may be disappointed. Once the piles have been established, the healing most probably won’t take place without a medical intervention.

What are piles?
Piles are a group of inflamed and swollen tissues in the anal canal. They can vary in sizes and degree of severity. Also, piles can be present both internally and externally. When it comes to internal piles, they are located almost 2-4 cm inside the anal cavity. Usually, internal piles are more common when compared to external piles. External piles occur just outside the anus.
What are the symptoms of piles?
Usually, piles is not a serious condition. However, if you don’t opt for treatment immediately, it can become complicated, where one might even have to undergo a surgery. Generally, the below-mentioned symptoms are experienced in piles patients;

  • When you touch the anus, you may feel a hard lump around it. This lump usually contains coagulated blood. And, the piles that contain coagulated blood are known as thrombosed external haemorrhoids.
  • When you pass stools, for a person suffering from piles go through a sensation where you feel like you need to revisit the toilet again.
  • You may bleed as you pass stools
  • The areas around the anus may become itchy, red, or tender
  • As you pass stools, you may experience a lot of pain

When piles become severe, along with the above-mentioned symptoms, you may also notice;

  • Too much bleeding from the anus, which can even cause anaemia
  • Infections of the anus
  • Faecal incontinence – It is a condition, where the bowel movements are not in control
  • Anal fistula
  •  A strangulated haemorrhoid, which means that the blood supply doesn’t reach the haemorrhoids, and can cause complications, such as infections or blood clot.
How are piles classified?
Piles can be categorized into four stages. They include;
Stage 1 – Here, the inflammations are present in the lining of the anus and cannot be seen.
Stage 2 – They also remain inside the anus like stage 1 but are bigger. Sometimes, they may get pushed out of the anus, while passing stools, but they will go back inside without any external help.
Stage 3 – These are also known as prolapsed haemorrhoids and sometimes the patients might feel them hanging from the rectum, and they appear outside. They can, however, be pushed back.
Step 4 – They are the most severe type of haemorrhoids. They require immediate treatment and you cannot push them back without medical assistance.
External piles are just present outside the anus as small lumps. They tend to be extremely itchy and can turn painful when they develop into clots. Thrombosed piles or clotted piles also require immediate medical attention.
How to prepare for a doctor’s appointment?

  • When the symptoms first started
