Hemorrhoids Q & A
What are hemorrhoids?
Hemorrhoids are swollen blood vessels that develop in the rectum or anal canal. This swelling often occurs due to straining with bowel movements, heavy lifting, or the excess pressure on your gastrointestinal system during pregnancy.
Symptoms of hemorrhoids can include:
- Pain during bowel movements
- Rectal bleeding
- Swelling of rectal tissue
You can develop two different types of hemorrhoids:
External hemorrhoids develop in the skin near the opening of the anus, and appear as visible lumps outside the anus.
Internal hemorrhoids occur when the veins inside the rectum become enlarged. In some cases, internal hemorrhoids can grow big enough to protrude outside of the anus.
How are hemorrhoids diagnosed?
You can have hemorrhoids without symptoms, but if you experience issues like rectal bleeding or pain, you should schedule a diagnostic evaluation.
Your Eisenman & Eisenman, M.D., Advanced Gastro Consultants physician will review your medical history and examine your anus to confirm external hemorrhoids.
You may need additional diagnostic testing using an anoscope to identify internal hemorrhoids. An anoscope is a small medical device that allows your doctor to get a better look at the tissues within your anal canal.
