What Is a Hemroid?

Were you looking for information on Hemorrhoids? The question, "What is a hemroid?" is a common misspelling of "What is a hemorrhoid?"
 
Hemorrhoids affect men and women equally. They are often caused by straining when having a bowel movement. Some women also experience hemorrhoids when pregnant. 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.
 
Treatment often starts with lifestyle changes, such as more fluid and fiber in your diet. In more severe cases, surgery may be necessary.
