What are Piles?
Piles, also known as hemorrhoids, are swollen and inflamed veins in the rectum and anus that can cause discomfort, pain, and bleeding. They can develop internally inside the rectum (internal piles) or externally under the skin around the anus (external piles). Symptoms may include rectal bleeding, itching, discomfort, and pain during bowel movements.

Types of Piles

  • Internal Piles: Located inside the rectum, internal piles may protrude through the anus during bowel movements and can cause bleeding or discomfort.
  • External Piles: Found under the skin around the anus, external piles may cause itching, pain, and swelling.

Treatment for Piles

Non-Surgical Treatment:

  • Medications: Over-the-counter creams, ointments, and suppositories may help relieve symptoms such as itching and pain. Prescription medications may be recommended for more severe cases.
  • Lifestyle Changes: Eating a high-fiber diet, drinking plenty of fluids, and avoiding prolonged sitting or straining during bowel movements can help prevent and alleviate piles symptoms.

Surgical Treatment:

  • Open Surgery: Traditional surgical procedures may be necessary for large or persistent piles that do not respond to non-surgical treatments.
  • Laser Piles Surgery: Minimally invasive procedure that uses laser energy to shrink or remove piles tissue, resulting in less post-operative pain and faster recovery.
  • Cauterization: A procedure that uses heat or laser to burn hemorrhoidal tissue, reducing its size and symptoms.
  • Rubber-band Ligation: A non-surgical procedure where a rubber band is placed around the base of the hemorrhoid to cut off its blood supply, causing it to shrink and fall off.
  • Stapled Hemorrhoidectomy: Surgical procedure that removes excess tissue and repositions the remaining tissue to its normal position, reducing symptoms and preventing recurrence.

Piles Diagnosis of piles typically involves a physical examination of the anus and rectum, including a visual inspection and digital rectal examination. In some cases, additional tests such as anoscopy, sigmoidoscopy, or colonoscopy may be recommended to evaluate the extent and severity of the condition.
