Urbanites are more afflicted by this disease than villagers. This disease is very common in the states of Punjab, Rajasthan, Assam, West Bengal, Orissa, Bihar, For some reason some portion of the blood carrying veins in the periphery of rectum swells and emerges out of the surface, this situation is called Piles. Piles is known as warts. The patient sufferers' enormous pain.
As this disease occurs at the end of fistula and rectum the patient normally does not divulge the situation of disease due to shame but is unable to bear enormous pain.
In this disease blood comes out from rectum while defecating. Sometimes the moles of piles come out and again go inside the rectum while defecating. Apart from this the patient feels sensations, itching and pain. I would like to let you know a fact. Many times bleeding is not due to piles but due to other diseases, eg ulcer or cancer in the large intestine.
Types of piles
Although piles develop from inside the anal canal, they can hang down out of their normal place. Piles can be described as follows.
stages : -
First degree piles are swellings on the inside lining of the anal canal. They bleed but can't be seen from outside the anus. Second degree piles are larger and stick out (or prolapse) from the anus when you open your bowels, but return on their own afterwards.
Third degree piles are similar, but hang out from the anus and only return inside when pushed back in. Fourth degree piles permanently hang down from the anus and you can't push them back inside. They may become extremely swollen and painful if the blood in them clots.
External piles : -
Swellings that develop from below the anal cushions are sometimes called external piles. They can be more painful than the other types of piles. Other causes of lumps around the anus can include a "sentinel pile", which is the painless skin tag that develops when a crack in the anus (an anal fissure) heals up. Also, a collection of blood under the skin, called a peri-anal haematoma, may also be referred to as a type of external pile. The treatment of these conditions is different from true piles.

- Out-patient treatments : - These are treatments that you can have in hospital, but you won't need to stay overnight. >
- Banding : - This is used mostly for second and third degree piles, but you can also have it if self-help treatments haven't worked for your first degree piles.
Your doctor will place a small elastic band just above the pile. This will cut off the blood supply to the pile, causing it to die and fall off after a few days. The raw area left behind will heal up naturally.
- Sclerotherapy: - This is an injection of an oily solution known as a sclerosant into first or second degree piles. The oil causes the pile to shrink and fall off.
- In-patient treatments: - These are treatments that you have in hospital. You may need to stay overnight so that your doctors can monitor your progress afterwards.
- Haemorrhoidectomy: - This is the surgical removal of piles. Your doctor may suggest a haemorrhoidectomy if you have third or fourth degree piles, or if banding or sclerotherapy hasn't worked.
The operation is done under general anaesthetic. This means you will be asleep during the operation and feel no pain. Typically, you must not eat or drink for about six hours before a general anaesthetic. However, some anaesthetists allow occasional sips of water until two hours beforehand.
