Hemorrhoids are rarely serious but they can be a real nuisance. Depending on what type of hemorrhoids you have, they may cause pain, bleeding, itching, and swelling.

What causes hemorrhoids?
Hemorrhoids result from an increase in pressure in the lower rectal area. This increase in pressure can affect the blood flow in the area and cause the rectal veins to swell.

Increase in pressure in the rectal area can happen as a result of:

      • Constant straining during bowel movement
      • Straining when lifting heavy objects
      • Obesity
      • Pregnancy

When to seek treatment?
Hemorrhoid symptoms like pain and swelling can often be temporarily managed at home with warm sitz baths, over the counter creams, and simple lifestyle changes like adding more fiber in the diet, drinking more water, and incorporating more physical activities. However, if your symptoms don’t go away and your hemorrhoids are causing you severe pain, discomfort, and bleeding, then it’s best to see a doctor.
