Symptoms and Causes

  • External hemorrhoids cause itching, pain, swelling, bleeding around the anus, and pain or discomfort while sitting. Prolapsed hemorrhoids may bulge outside the anus.
  • Internal hemorrhoids are often asymptomatic but may cause painless rectal bleeding, seen as blood on toilet paper, in stool, or in the toilet bowl.
  • Thrombosed hemorrhoids are a hard lump near the anus with intense swelling and pain.

There are various causes of hemorrhoids, as follows: 

  • Pressure due to longer sitting habits, especially on the toilet, due to constipation, obesity, and a low-fiber diet. 
  • Lifting weights can also increase the pressure and cause hemorrhoids, 
  • Increased pressure on the pelvic floor due to childbearing.

Hemorrhoid-type symptoms can also be caused by other gastrointestinal disorders, such as colon cancer, Crohn’s disease, and ulcerative colitis, which require medical evaluation for proper diagnosis and management.
