*Hemorrhoids* (US English) or *haemorrhoids* UK
/ˈhɛmərɔɪdz/, are vascular structures in the anal canal
which help with stool control.^[1]^[2] They become pathological or
*piles*^[3] when swollen or inflamed. In their physiological state, they
act as a cushion composed of arterio-venous channels and connective tissue.

The symptoms of pathological hemorrhoids depend on the type present.
Internal hemorrhoids usually present with painless rectal bleeding while
external hemorrhoids may produce few symptoms or if thrombosed significant
pain and swelling in the area of the anus. Many people incorrectly refer to
any symptom occurring around the anal-rectal area as "hemorrhoids" and
serious causes of the symptoms should be ruled out.^[4] While the exact
cause of hemorrhoids remains unknown, a number of factors which increase
intra-abdominal pressure, in particular constipation, are believed to play
a role in their development.

Initial treatment for mild to moderate disease consists of increasing fiber
intake, oral fluids to maintain hydration, NSAIDs to help with the pain,
and rest. A number of minor procedures may be performed if symptoms are
severe or do not improve with conservative management. Surgery is reserved
for those who fail to improve following these measures. Up to half of
people may experience problems with hemorrhoids at some point in their
life. Outcomes are usually good.
