Re-thinking what we know about piles!
Piles or Hemorrhoids are swollen, inflamed veins entangled around the anal area or in the lower part of the rectum i.e. the last part of the large intestine leading to the anus which is the opening at the end of the digestive tract where the bowel contents leave the body. The cause of hemorrhoids or piles is usually clinically explained as when excess pressure is applied on blood vessels in and around the anus, just like in conditions like long term constipation or straining hard to pass the stools, which leads to their swelling and inflammation.
