Types of Piles

Internal Piles:These reside inside the rectum and often go unnoticed until they prolapse (bulge) during bowel movements. They are usually painless but may cause bright red rectal bleeding.

External Piles: These are located under the skin around the anus, forming noticeable lumps. They can be itchy, painful, and bleed, especially during bowel movements.

Thrombosed Piles: Blood clots form within an external pile, causing intense pain, swelling, and tenderness.

Prolapsed Piles: Internal piles protrude outside the anus, causing discomfort, irritation, and difficulty wiping.

Types of Piles based on severity

Piles can be broadly categorized into four grades, each with distinct characteristics and treatment options
Grade 1 Piles:

Description:Small, internal swellings located inside the rectum.

Symptoms: May not cause any noticeable symptoms, but some people experience mild itching or discomfort.

Treatment: Usually resolve on their own with lifestyle changes like increasing fiber intake and managing constipation.


Grade 2 Piles:

Description:Larger internal swellings that prolapse (protrude) outside the anus during bowel movements but retract spontaneously.

Symptoms: Bleeding, mild pain, and itching during bowel movements are common.

Treatment: Lifestyle modifications and home remedies often work, but sometimes minimally invasive procedures like rubber band ligation may be recommended.


Grade 3 Piles:

Description:Larger swellings that prolapse and require manual pushing back into the rectum after bowel movements.

Symptoms: Increased bleeding, pain, and discomfort, along with difficulty cleaning the anal area.

Treatment: May require minimally invasive procedures like sclerotherapy or hemorrhoidectomy depending on the severity and recurrence.


Grade 4 Piles:

Description:Prolapsed and permanently external swellings that cannot be pushed back in.

Symptoms: Significant pain, bleeding, and difficulty with hygiene, impacting daily life.

Treatment: Surgical intervention like hemorrhoidectomy is typically recommended due to the persistent discomfort and complications.

Causes Of Piles

Increased pressure on the veins:
Straining during bowel movements, pregnancy, obesity, and chronic sitting or standing can contribute to increased pressure on the veins in the rectum, leading to pile formation.

causes-of-piles

Low-fiber diet:
A diet low in fiber can lead to constipation, which puts further strain on the veins and exacerbates existing piles.

Heavy lifting:
Regularly lifting heavy objects can also put increased pressure on the veins in the rectum.

Chronic medical conditions:
Some medical conditions like liver cirrhosis or portal vein hypertension can also contribute to pile formation.


Impact on Daily Life:

Living with piles can be immensely uncomfortable and inconvenient. The constant pain, itching, and bleeding can interfere with daily activities, work, and even social life. It can affect your sleep quality and overall well-being.

Prevention of Piles

Piles, also known as hemorrhoids, can be a pain. Literally. But before you suffer in silence, know that prevention is often the best cure.

Fiber Frenzy: Embrace fiber! Include fruits, vegetables, and whole grains in your diet. Fiber bulks up your stool, making it easier to pass, reducing strain on your rectum and preventing the formation of pesky piles. Aim for 25-35 grams of fiber daily.

Hydrate Hero: Water is your friend! Drinking plenty of water keeps your stool soft and prevents constipation, a major contributor to piles. Aim for 8-10 glasses of water daily, adjusting based on your activity level and climate.

piles-treatment-without-Surgery

Exercise Enthusiast:
Get moving! Regular exercise, like brisk walking, swimming, or yoga, improves blood circulation and digestion, keeping your gut happy and piles at bay. Aim for at least 30 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise most days of the week.

Bathroom Buddy: Don't ignore the call of nature! Holding it in puts undue pressure on your veins, increasing the risk of piles. Go as soon as you feel the urge, and avoid straining during bowel movements.

Sit Smart:
Ditch the hard benches and opt for chairs with soft cushions. Prolonged sitting, especially on hard surfaces, can aggravate existing piles and contribute to their formation. Take breaks, get up and move around every 30-60 minutes.

Weight Watch: Excess weight puts pressure on your abdominal cavity, including your rectum. Keeping your weight in check through a healthy diet and exercise reduces this pressure and the risk of piles.

Spice it Up (But Not Too Much):
While adding some spice to your life can be delightful, excessive chili peppers and spicy foods can irritate your digestive system and worsen piles. Enjoy spice in moderation, and listen to your body's signals.
