Hemorrhoid Surgery

"Hemorrhoids, also called piles, are swollen and inflamed veins around your anus or in your lower rectum.

The two types of hemorrhoids are

  • external hemorrhoids, which form under the skin around the anus
  • internal hemorrhoids, which form in the lining of the anus and lower rectum

Hemorrhoids are common in both men and women1 and affect about 1 in 20 Americans. About half of adults older than age 50 have hemorrhoids.

You are more likely to get hemorrhoids if you

  • strain during bowel movements
  • sit on the toilet for long periods of time
  • have chronic constipation or diarrhea
  • eat foods that are low in fiber
  • are older than age 50
  • are pregnant
  • often lift heavy objects
