In your lower rectum, there are swollen veins that are hard to get rid of. Internal hemorrhoids are usually not painful, but they usually bleed. 

 Some people may feel pain when they have hemorrhoids that are on the outside of their bodies. Hemorrhoids are swollen veins in your anus and lower rectum, like varicose veins. They are also called piles. 

 People of all ages can get hemorrhoids that cause symptoms, even if they are young. Children aren’t very likely to get hemorrhoids because they take time to grow. 

Risk factors For Hemorrhoids

  • Obesity 
  • Pregnancy 
  • Eat low-fiber food. 
  • Constipation or diarrhea 
  • Lifting 
  • Siting on the toilet a lot 

Is there more than one type of hemorrhoid? 

Some people have hematomas that happen inside or outside of their rectum. People have different types based on where the swollen vein grows. 


  1. A lot of swollen veins appear on the outside of the body around the anus. When you poop, it comes out of your anus. People who have hemorrhoids on the outside can be itchy and painful. Sometimes, they get hurt. They can sometimes get filled with blood that can clot. This isn’t dangerous, but it can cause pain and swelling. 
  2. Internal hemorrhoids are located inside the rectum, where a lot of veins become swollen and hard. In your body, your rectum is the part of your digestive system that connects your colon (large intestine) to your anus. Internal hemorrhoids may bleed, but they aren’t usually very painful, and they usually don’t hurt at all. 
  3. Hemorrhoids can prolapse, which means they stretch and bulge outside of the anus. In this case, they might bleed, and they might hurt. 

Other Causes of Hemorrhoids 

Internal hemorrhoids don’t usually cause pain (and usually can’t be felt) unless they come out, which is very rare. Many people who have internal hemorrhoids don’t know they have them because they don’t show any signs of having them. 

If you have symptoms of internal hemorrhoids, you might see blood on the toilet paper, in your stool, or in the toilet bowl. This is because hemorrhoids are inside your body. In this case, these are signs that there has been bleeding in the rectal area. 

 External hemorrhoids show up as: 

  • Itchy anus 
  • Hard lumps near the anus that make you feel sore or hurt. 
  • The anus hurts when you sit down. 
  • Colonic bleeding.
