Were you looking for information on Hemorrhoids? Hemorroid 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. They are often caused by straining when having a bowel movement, but can also be related to aging, pregnancy, or chronic constipation or diarrhea.
Treatment for hemorrhoids starts with increasing fiber and fluids in the diet. In most cases, treatment focuses on modifying bowel habits and relieving symptoms. Surgery or other options may be recommended if conservative treatment is not enough.
