Get fast, pain-free relief with no down time.

Hemorrhoids  are one of the most common conditions in humans and are documented as far back as the Bible.  Hemorrhoids are part of the normal anatomy. They are three cushions within the anal canal that have vascular connections enabling them to seal off the canal and prevent leakage. It is when these vascular connections become abnormally distended do they begin to cause many of the symptoms associated with hemorrhoids.  They exist in two forms:  Internal – in the lower rectum; External – outside the anal opening.

What causes hemorrhoids?

Normally, vessels inside the hemorrhoid fill with blood. Increased pressure, while straining to move stool over a period of time, causes the veins in this tissue to swell and stretch and gradually lose support of the surrounding connective tissue. This can cause symptoms associated with hemorrhoids.

How common are hemorrhoids?

Many people have hemorrhoids at some point in their lives. Over 50% of the population, in fact, will experience this condition. The prevalence of hemorrhoids is equal between men and women but men are more likely to seek treatment.

Four Degrees of Hemorrhoid Severity

The most typical symptom of internal hemorrhoids is bright red bleeding, itching, burning and pain. More advanced hemorrhoids protrude with a bowel movement and can cause hygeine concerns. Hemorrhoids are actually classified, depending upon severity, into four degrees. Classifying hemorrhoids helps pinpoint which stage your hemorrhoids are in and also helps determine the most optimal mode of treatment for you.

  • First degree hemorrhoids: The hemorrhoids remain inside at all times. They do not protrude from the anus.
  • Second degree hemorrhoids: The hemorrhoids protrude with a bowel movement, but reduce spontaneously.
  • Third degree hemorrhoids: The hemorrhoids protrude with a bowel movement, but require manual insertion.
  • Fourth degree hemorrhoids: The most severe hemorrhoids always protrude and cannot be pushed back in. These typically require surgery.
