What are Haemorrhoids?

A Haemorrhoid (also known as piles) is a swollen vein or group of veins in the anal region which can be painful and unpleasant. Symptoms can range from temporary and mild to persistent and painful, and in the more severe cases treatment can ease and treat the problem. Haemorrhoids affect approximately 50% of the population and appear to be distributed evenly across both males and females.


Haemorrhoids are a condition in which the veins around the anus or lower rectum are swollen and inflamed. They may result from straining to move stool. Other causes that increase your risk of developing haemorrhoids include but are not limited to:

  • Irregular bowel habits, constipation or diarrhoea
  • Genetic predisposition
  • Little exercise
  • Nutrition, low fibre diet
  • Pregnancy and delivery (mostly temporary condition)
  • Obesity
  • Aging
  • Sitting long periods of time
  • Anal intercourse


Haemorrhoids are usually very uncomfortable but are not dangerous or life threatening. Haemorrhoidal symptoms can disappear after a few days but eventually return, often worse.
