Haemorrhoids, also known as piles, are natural cushions of tissue and veins located at the junction of the rectum and anus. Along with the sphincter, this normal tissue is responsible for complete closure of the anus and prevents any leakage.
How do they work?
During a bowel movement, these cushions become smaller to allow stool to pass through. Everyone has them, and problems only arise when they become larger than they should.
What should I do?
With almost one in every two adults being affected by haemorrhoids at some stage of their life, there’s no longer any need for sufferers to be embarrassed or fearful. The earlier you seek advice and a thorough diagnosis, the better the chances are that symptoms can be cured with minimal discomfort.
