Piles (hemorrhoids) are the swollen blood vessels around the anus. The veins can swell inside the anal canal to form internal hemorrhoids or veins can swell near the opening of the anus to form external hemorrhoids.

Chronic constipation, irregularity of bowel evacuation, and prolonged sojourns on the toilet are thought to be conductive toward piles formation. Pregnancy, because of the pressure of the baby’s head in the pelvis also leads toward hemorrhoid formation.

Piles are the most common condition in the anal region and affects 10-15 percent of the populations at one time or another.

Whenever the internal piles pushes out of the anal opening the condition is known as prolapsed piles and sometimes blood gets collected in the external piles and there they form a clot, these are called as thrombosed external piles.

Positions of hemorrhoids – they are usually situated in the 3, 7, 11 o’ clock position, that is left lateral, right posterior and right anterior respectively.

Causes of Piles

piles treatment with homeopathic medicine

Piles symptoms probably result from increased intravenous pressure in the hemorrhoidal plexus (the veins in rectum).

Predisposing factors include heart failure, alcoholism, anorectal infections, pregnancy, anal intercourse, and occupations that require prolonged standing or sitting.

Other factors include hepatic disease, such as cirrhosis, amoebic abscesses, or hepatitis; loss of muscle tone due to old age, rectal surgery, or episiotomy; and straining due to constipation, diarrhea, coughing, sneezing, or vomiting.

Primary causes mainly include:

  • Prolonged Standing position
  • Anatomical factors – exerting during act of defecation
  • Congenital weakness of vein wall
  • Constipation
  • Gravity
  • Straining
  • Irregular bowel habits

Secondary causes mainly include

  • Carcinoma of rectum
  • Portal hypertension
  • Pregnancy

Sign and symptoms of Piles

  • Painless bleeding
  • Minor trauma causes bleeding
  • External piles are painful
  • Patient gives history of constipation
  • Pruritus is common factor
  • Discharge of mucus
  • Irritation of perianal skin

Rectal bleeding should be attributed to hemorrhoids only after other more serious conditions have been excluded. Hemorrhoidal bleeding, which typically occurs following defecation and is noted on toilet tissue, rarely leads to anemia; they are painful; only when they are ulcerated or thrombosed.

General Treatment for Piles

In general:

  • Warm sitz bath
  • Increase fluid intake
  • Increase dietary fibre
  • Stool softness
  • Person should not sit for a long duration
  • Exercise is helpful in relieving constipation

A high-fiber diet to keep soft is usually all that is needed for treatment  of painless bleeding from grade I or II hemorrhoids. Some patients experience local problems with itching or burning, secondary to poor hygiene or edema associated with the hemorrhoids. This often improves with local measures such as diaper wipes, witch hazel pads, and sitz baths.
