What are Hemorrhoids?
Hemorrhoids (HEM-uh-roids), also called piles, are swollen and inflamed veins in your anus and lower rectum. Hemorrhoids may result from straining during bowel movements or from the increased pressure on these veins during pregnancy, among other causes. Hemorrhoids
may be located inside the rectum (internal hemorrhoids), or they may develop under the skin around the anus (external hemorrhoids).
