What are Piles or Hemorrhoids?
The terms hemorrhoids, emerods, or piles are used to define the swelling and inflammation of veins in the rectum and anus. It has been seen that this term actually refers to cushions of tissues that are filled with blood vessels at the intersection of the rectum and the anus. But piles also refer to varicosities of the hemorrhoid tissue and often Perianal hematoma is misdiagnosed as hemorrhoids even though it is entirely different from the same. There is increased strain on bowel movements followed by constipation or diarrhea that often leads to hemorrhoids.
