Hemorrhoids are swollen, dilated veins of the rectum or anus, which is the lowest portion of the colon. Hemorrhoid may be located at the beginning of the anal canal, which refers to internal hemorrhoids, or at the anal opening, which are external hemorrhoids. They are very much like varicose veins because they loose enlarge and lose their elasticity. Off course, this is resulting in their sac-like protrusions into the anal canal. Hemorrhoids may be present for years, but go undetected until bleed occurs, as many people reported. There are different types of hemorrhoids, depending on their location, severity, and the amount of pain or they cause. These are internal hemorrhoids, which are located inside the rectum and are usually painless, especially if located above the anorectal line. They tend to bleed and when this happens, the blood appears bright red. Another type is external hemorrhoids, also known as piles. This type of hemorrhoid can be extremely painful, but rarely bleed. The last group is prolapsed hemorrhoid is an internal hemorrhoid that collapses and protrudes outside the anus. Those are often accompanied by a mucous discharge and heavy bleeding.
