Were you looking for information about Hemorrhoids? Hemerhoids 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 them include aging, chronic constipation or diarrhea, anal intercourse, or pregnancy.
