Were you looking for information about Hemorrhoids? Hemmorhoids is a common misspelling of hemorrhoids.
Hemorrhoids are a common problem that affects both men and women equally. They occur when the veins around the anus or lower rectum become swollen and inflamed, often causing symptoms such as anal itching, pain, and blood-covered stool.
They are often caused by straining during a bowel movement. Other factors that can lead to hemorrhoids include pregnancy, aging, and chronic constipation or diarrhea. Conservative treatment is recommended at first, such as exercise and increased fiber and fluids. If these options aren't enough to treat the problem, other treatments are available, including surgery.
