Overview

Also known as haemorrhoids, piles has become common these days. About 50% of adults suffer from piles by the age of 50. It occurs when there are swollen tissues inside the anal canal or around the anus, resulting in bleeding and pain.

Piles is not a critical condition, but they can be quite uncomfortable. However, people often confuse this condition with other rectal problems such as fissure, piles and fistula. Therefore, expert consultation and diagnosis are important for further treatments.

  • Prolapse
  • Blood clots
  • Infection
  • Strangulation

  • Straining during bowel movements

Diagnosis:
To diagnose piles, doctors will only ask about the patient’s medical history and symptoms. In some cases, they may perform a physical examination.

Treatment

Piles

Usually, piles can be treated using creams, ointments or medications, although one in ten patients will require surgery. It involves surgical removal of the haemorrhoids and surrounding tissues and is carried out using general anaesthesia. After getting anaesthesia, the patient becomes unconscious and feels no pain while the surgery is going on.
