Symptoms of Hemroids
Were you looking for information about Hemorrhoid Symptoms? Symptoms of hemroids is a common variation of hemorrhoid symptoms.
Hemorrhoid symptoms are generally mild and disappear within a few days. There are two types of hemorrhoids, and each type is named for the veins that are affected. Internal hemorrhoids are caused by increased pressure within the internal hemorrhoidal veins; external hemorrhoids are caused by increased pressure within the external hemorrhoidal veins.
Internal hemorrhoids can cause symptoms that usually include bright-red blood covering the stool, on toilet paper, or in the toilet bowl. External hemorrhoids may result in painful swelling or a hard lump around the anus that results when a blood clot forms.
Treatment for hemorrhoids consists of relieving symptoms, modifying bowel habits, and relieving pressure by increasing fiber and fluids. In some cases, surgery may be necessary.
