Were you looking for information about Hemorrhoids? Hemarroids is a common misspelling of hemorrhoids.
Hemorrhoids are common colon problems that affect both men and women equally. They can be internal (inside the anus) or external (under the skin around the anus), and occur when the veins around the anus or lower rectum become swollen and inflamed.
Hemorrhoids are often caused by straining during a bowel movement. Other factors that may lead to the condition include pregnancy, anal intercourse, aging, and chronic constipation or diarrhea. Symptoms vary from person to person and depend on the type of hemorrhoids. Possible signs include anal itching and a vague feeling of anal discomfort.
