When swellings develop inside and around the back passage (anus) and the anal canal, it is known as Haemorrhoids or piles. The anal canal is the end of the large intestine and is about 4 cm long. It is an opening through which faeces pass. The upper end connects the rectum. Both are part of large intestine. In the anal canal there are networks of veins. These veins sometimes become engorged and wider when more bloods flows than usual. Then overlying tissue and engorged veins may form one or more small swellings called piles. Its symptom ranges from temporary and mild to persistent and painful.
Types of Piles (Haemorrhoids)
Piles are of two types, internal piles and external piles. Internal Piles are those that form 2 to 3 cm inside the back passage (anus) and are painless. External Piles are formed at the lower part of the anal canal and are very painful. Some people may develop internal as well as external piles at the same time. Internal piles are classified into 4 grades according to its severity and size.
- Grade 1: are small swellings on the inside lining of the anal canal. They cannot be felt from outside the anus. Grade 1 piles are common. In some people they enlarge further to grade 2 or more.
- Grade 2: is larger. They may be partly pushed out from the anus when you go to the toilet, but quickly spring back inside again.
- Grade 3: hangs out from the anus when you go to the toilet. You may feel one or more as small, soft lumps that hang from the anus. However, you can push them back inside the anus with a finger.
- Grade 4: permanently hangs down from within the anus, and you cannot push them back inside. They sometimes become very large.
