What are hemorrhoids?
Hemorrhoids are also called hemorrhoids .
They can appear overnight, but you can also have hemorrhoids without knowing it.
The rectum, also called rectum , which sits just above the anus, contains so-called swelling bodies.
These swelling bodies act as a kind of cushion and help you hold back your stools.
Hemorrhoids are swelling bodies that are swollen and sagged. The blood vessels are stretched or set up.
The hemorrhoids are tangled in the canal in front of the anus and around the anus. They are actually inflamed varicose veins in the rectum.
There are two types of hemorrhoids:
Internal hemorrhoids are in the rectum. You cannot see or feel this. Therefore, they do not always cause symptoms and treating hemorrhoids does not necessarily have to be necessary.
Internal hemorrhoids can come out by pressing during bowel movements and bleed.
External hemorrhoids are under the skin around the anus. These are often very painful, especially during bowel movements.
They are sensitive, give itching and irritation and a burning sensation. Sometimes it is accompanied by mucus or blood loss (during stool).
Some people suffer from hemorrhoids for years.

Blood accumulation in the abdomen and pelvis.
Sit a lot and long so that the intestinal movement stagnates.
An eating pattern with too much sugar. Sugar causes inflammation.
During pregnancy many women suffer from hemorrhoids due to increased pressure on the veins.
Anal sex can sometimes cause disturbances to the rectum
