Almost half of the adult population in industrialized countries around the world such as Europe and the United States will suffer from hemorrhoids at one time or another. Sometimes people of the younger age group are affected by hemorrhoids. In general, more men than women are affected, although pregnant women are particularly prone to hemorrhoids.
The most important predisposing factor is the abnormal build-up of pressure in the buttocks area due to constipation, which is characterized by stress during bowel movements.
This pressure is transferred to the rectal and anal areas, causing the veins in that area to swell into oversized veins. Other common predisposing factors are pregnancy, anal sex, obesity, aging, and an inactive lifestyle.
There are two main forms of hemorrhoids:
(a) Internal hemorrhoids
(b) External hemorrhoids
Sometimes when these two forms coexist, this condition is called an intero-external hemorrhoid. Internal hemorrhoids may be asymptomatic or painless light red bleeding, pain, and mucus discharge.
Symptoms of pain, mucus discharge, and itching are more often associated with a type of complicated internal hemorrhoid called a prolapsed hemorrhoid.
Prolapsed internal hemorrhoids protrude from the opening of the anus, initially the protrusion is small and occurs only during bowel movements, and the reduction occurs spontaneously (it comes back on its own). These are called second degree prolapsed hemorrhoids.
Hemorrhoids that occur during bowel movements but have to be reduced manually by pushing them back into the anus are called third degree hemorrhoids.
When hemorrhoids are prolapsed permanently, they are called fourth degree hemorrhoids. These are the types of internal hemorrhoids that are usually associated with mucus discharge, itching, and a feeling of heaviness in the rectum. If these third or fourth degree hemorrhoids get stuck in the sphincter muscles, they can be strangled and become extremely painful.
These highly prolapsed third or fourth degree hemorrhoids are also easily predisposed to blood clots, which leads to the formation of thrombosed hemorrhoids.
The following treatment options can be used to effectively treat premature hemorrhoids:
Surgery in 1 stack:
You can use simple surgical methods on a few occasional hemorrhoids that don’t respond to much simpler forms of treatment.

The main disadvantage of these hemorrhoid surgeries is that they can be associated with some uncomfortable side effects, which include pain and discomfort after hemorrhoid surgery, which makes the pain sensation worse.
