Were you looking for information on Hemorrhoids? Hemmorhoid is a common misspelling of hemorrhoids.
Hemorrhoids affect both men and women equally. They are often caused by straining when having a bowel movement. However, some women develop them when pregnant. Hemorrhoids can be internal (inside the anus) or external (under the skin around the anus), and they occur when the veins around the anus or lower rectum become swollen and inflamed. Symptoms can include bleeding, anal itching, and pain, among others.
There are several treatment options available. In most cases, conservative treatment is tried first. Exercise and increased fiber in the diet can help reduce constipation and straining by producing stools that are softer and easier to pass. In more severe cases, surgery or other procedures may be necessary.
