How do I know that I have Hemorrhoids or Piles?
- Bleeding in the stools along with Swelling or bulge coming out of the anal opening while passing motions are the commonest indications of piles.
- Constipation and straining for motions is an associated symptom.
- Later the bulges sag outside the anal opening and remain outside thereby causing pain, itching & blood+sticky mucus stains on your undergarments.
- It is mandatory that you get yourself examined by a colon-rectal surgeon & proctologist to accurately diagnose your problem because not all problems around the anus are piles.
