Piles Treatment in Delhi NCR
Piles, also known as haemorrhoids, are the lumps or swollen veins formed inside and around the anus. These swollen veins within the anus (internal haemorrhoids) and under the skin of the anus (external haemorrhoids) are just like the varicose veins.
This condition gets better on its own after some days. However, you can do various things to prevent and treat piles.
Many adults suffer from piles from time to time. It occurs due to various reasons but its reason is not known. Fortunately, there are many effective options to treat haemorrhoids. Most people get relief with simple home remedies and lifestyle changes.
Signs and Symptoms
Common Symptoms of haemorrhoids are:
- bleeding on passing stools
- extreme itching in and around the anus
- irritation and pain around the anus
- faecal leakage
- lumps formation around the anus
- painful or itchy lumps or swelling around the anus
- feeling as if you need to pass stools after going to the toilet
- slimy mucus in your underwear or on toilet paper after wiping your bottom
- painful bowel movements
While haemorrhoids are painful, these are not life-threatening and also go on their own without the treatment. If you’ve piles, you also develop signs of anaemia like pale skin and weakness because of blood loss. Some haemorrhoid symptoms are also similar to that of other digestive tract issues. However, rectum bleeding also occurs due to Crohn’s disease, cancer of the rectum, etc.
While the presence of piles is considered as normal anatomy, many people and healthcare professionals refer to it as an abnormal condition due to the swelling and other problems.
Pile swelling occurs when the pressure increases in small blood vessels. This further causes these vessels to increase in size and lead to various symptoms.
The increased pressure in the vessels is caused due to various factors, such as:
- Smaller calibre stool and low fibre diet that causes an individual to strain while having a bowel movement and increases pressure in the blood vessels.
- Prolonged sitting on a toilet seat can also increase pressure inside the haemorrhoid blood vessels.
- Pregnancy is also related to haemorrhoid swelling and also likely to increase the pressure of the enlarged uterus on anus and rectum. Additionally, the hormonal changes due to pregnancy weaken muscles supporting anus and rectum.
- Acute and chronic diarrhoea
- Colon cancer
Haemorrhoids, or piles, can occur due to genetic factor when passed on to a child from their parent. So, if your parents suffered from haemorrhoids, you are also likely to be affected by them in the future or might already have.
Consistently being obese, heavy lifting or having other persistent on your body could also increase the risk of getting piles.
If you stand too much without taking any break for sitting can be another reason for haemorrhoids. Consistent anal sex and diarrhoea are other common reasons to increase the risk of developing haemorrhoids.
You may develop piles even when you’re pregnant. When your uterus enlarges, it puts pressure on a vein in the colon and causes a bulge.
Piles Treatment Options
- Pain relief: To relief pain, sit in a bathtub full of warm water for 10 minutes every day. You may even try sitting on a warm water bottle for relieving the pain of piles. If the pain is unbearable, try over-the-counter suppository, cream or ointment to relieve itching and burning.
- Fibre supplements: To avoid constipation, take over-the-counter fibre supplements for softening stools.
- Topical creams: You may even try some over-the-counter topical creams like haemorrhoid or hydrocortisone cream.
- Medical procedures: If home remedies don’t work, your doctor can recommend using a rubber band ligation to cut off the circulation of piles by placing the rubber band around it. Due to a lack of circulation, the haemorrhoid is forced to shrink. But only get this procedure done by a medical professional – NOT at home. If this treatment doesn’t work, the doctor can perform the injection therapy, known as sclerotherapy, to reduce haemorrhoid’s size.
