More information about Piles
Piles are also referred to as hemorrhoids. Piles are a condition when the soft tissue located near the pectinate line (upper and lower opening of the anus)inflammation and swells. They can be internal-external and different in size.
Types of Piles:
Internal piles: They are located inside the anus 5-6 cm deep from the opening of the anus. They are the most common types of piles. They are located above the pectinate line and lined up by similar cells present in the intestine.
External Piles: They are located outside the anus. They are covered by cells similar to skin cells. They are majorly on the edge of the anus.
To diagnose Piles, a Urologist may need to take a physical examination. They will examine the anus and ask the following questions:
For Internal piles, the doctor may perform an internal digital rectal examination (DRE) or use a proctoscope for physical examination. A proctoscope is a hollow tube with light that helps the doctor to examine anal health. Proctoscope can collect a small tissue sample from the rectum for examination.
The urologist may recommend colonoscopy, for examination of the colon, to identify the cause of piles or any other digestive system disease. They may also perform a colonoscopy to confirm colorectal cancer in piles patients.
In the majority of cases, piles are treated themselves. However, some treatments can treat piles significantly and reduce pain and discomfort, and itching.
Treatment by a change in lifestyle:
A urologist may recommend you for a sudden change in your lifestyle. Change in diet and body weight is the primary change a doctor might recommend initially.
Changes in body Weight: A urologist will recommend losing weight, to reduce strain in the stool. Exercising and Yoga are very helpful in relieving pain.
Changes in Diet: To keep the stool soft and regular to avoid constipation and straining of stool, a Urologist will ask you to eat more fibers, fruits, and vegetables or breakfast cereals.
Treatment by Medication:
Treatment by Surgical procedure:
Around 5- 10 people with piles will end up needing surgery.
Piles are classified into four grades:
Grade I: These are small inflammations, usually found inside the lining of the anus. They are not visible.
Grade II: Grade II hemorrhoid are larger than grade I hemorrhoid, but are also found inside the anus. They may get out during the passing of stool, but they may get back unaided.
Grade III: These are known as prolapsed piles, and appear outside the anus. You may feel them hanging from the rectum, but they can be easily pushed back to the rectum.
Grade IV: These are not re-inserted back in and require treatment. They are very large and remain located outside of the anus.
Complications of piles:
Piles majorly cause any serious issue but sometimes they may lead to the following.
External piles (swellings that develop outside of your anal canal, closer to your anus) can become swollen and inflamed; ulcers may also spot on them.
Skin tags may form when the inside of the hemorrhoid shrinks back but the outer skin remains.
If mucus or blood leaks from your anus, it can make the nearby area skin very sore.
Internal hemorrhoids that prolapse (hang down) can sometimes pile lose their blood supply. If a blood clot forms (thrombosis), a hemorrhoid can have severe pain. External piles can also become thrombosed.
