Piles treatment in Delhi
Haemorrhoids or piles, are swollen veins in your anus and lower rectum. These are similar to varicose veins but develop inside the rectum (internal piles) or under the skin around the anus (external piles).
Constipation and prolonged sitting on a pot are two major reasons for haemorrhoids but there are many unknown causes for haemorrhoids. Fortunately, effective options are available to treat haemorrhoids. Many people get relief with home treatments and lifestyle changes.
Symptoms of piles
Symptoms of piles usually depend on its type.
These are under the skin around your anus. You might face:
- Itching or irritation in your anal area
- Pain or discomfort
- Swelling around your anus
Internal hemorrhoids or piles are inside the rectum. You usually can’t see or feel them, and they generally don’t cause any discomfort. But straining while passing stool can lead to:
- Painless bleeding during bowel movements.
- A prolapsed or protruding haemorrhoid which may result in pain and irritation.
If blood pools in an external piles and forms a clot or thrombus, it can result in:
- Severe pain
- A hard lump near your anus
Why should you see a doctor?
If you have bleeding during bowel movements or you have piles that don't improve within a week of home care, see your doctor.
If you have changes in bowel habits or if your stools change in color or consistency, consult a doctor. These changes can be symptoms of other diseases, including colorectal cancer and anal cancer.
In case you face large amounts of rectal bleeding, light headedness, dizziness, rush to hospital.
Causes of piles
The veins around your anus tend to stretch under pressure and may bulge or swell and result into piles. This could be due to
- Straining during bowel movements
- Sitting for long on the toilet pot
- Chronic diarrhea
- Chronic constipation
- Anal intercourse
- Low-fiber diet
Your risk of piles increases with age because the tissues that support the veins in your rectum and anus weakens. During pregnancy, the growing foetus’s weight puts pressure on the anal region.
Complications can occur due to piles
Chronic piles can lead to:
- Strangulated piles, which can cause extreme pain.
- Blood clots. Though not dangerous, it can be extremely painful.
Prevention of piles
The best way to prevent piles is to keep constipation at bay. Keep your stools soft, so they pass easily. So,
- Eat high-fiber foods.
- Include more fruits, vegetables and whole grains.
- Drink six to eight glasses of water and other liquids.
Consider fiber supplements. Most people don’t get enough of the recommended amount of fiber — 20 to 30 grams a day — in their diet.
Don’t strain when trying to pass a stool. Go as soon as you feel the urge.
Stay active to help prevent constipation.
