What Is a Hemmoroid?

Were you looking for information on Hemorrhoids? The question, "What is a hemmoroid?" is a common misspelling of "What is a hemorrhoid?"
 
Hemorrhoids are typically caused by straining during a bowel movement, but women can also experience them during pregnancy. They affect men and women equally, and rectal bleeding is one of the most common symptoms. 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.
