Hemoroids

Were you looking for information about Hemorrhoids? Hemoroids is a common misspelling of hemorrhoids.
 
Hemorrhoids are common 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. Common symptoms include bright-red blood covering the stool, on the toilet paper, or in the toilet bowl.
 
They are often caused by straining during a bowel movement. Some other factors that can lead to hemorrhoids include pregnancy, aging, and chronic constipation or diarrhea. Steps for preventing them include emptying your bowels as soon as possible after the urge occurs and keeping stools soft -- by increasing fiber in the diet and exercising -- so that they pass easily.
