Common "Internal Hemorrhoids" queries answered by top doctors | iCliniq

Internal Hemorrhoids

Hemorrhoids occur due to swollen veins of the anus and lower rectum. Internal hemorrhoids develop inside the rectum, which cannot be felt or seen. But discomfort is caused while passing stool through straining. There is painless bleeding during bowel movements and irritation in the anal area. It is often caused due to obesity, anal intercourse, chronic diarrhea, constipation, and heavy weight lifting. Taking a high-fiber diet, using over-the-counter hemorrhoid cream, and using a sitz bath helps to provide some relief.
