Were you looking for information on Hemorrhoids? Hemoroid is a common misspelling of hemorrhoids.
Hemorrhoids affect both men and women equally. They are often caused by straining when having a bowel movement. Some women also experience them when pregnant. Hemorrhoids 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. Common symptoms include anal itching, bleeding, and a feeling of vague anal discomfort.
In most cases, conservative treatment can improve symptoms. This includes things like increasing your fiber and fluid intake and modifying your bowel habits. However, surgery may be necessary if these lifestyle changes are not enough.
