Piles refer to a physiological condition whereby there is an inflammation of the vascular structures guarding the anal canal. Owing to the inflammation of the hemorrhoids or blood vessels guarding the anal passage; the pathogenic condition of piles develops.
Causes of Piles:
- A number of factors are responsible for the development of piles.
- Irregularity in bowel movement with susceptibility towards constipation and diarrhea is one of the causes.
- Constipation aids the condition of piles by giving way to prolonged straining.
- Absence of fiber, imbalanced diet with insistence on junk food contributes towards piles.
- Hereditary factors may also be responsible for the pathogenic condition of piles.
- Pregnancy may well give rise to the condition of piles with the developing fetus exerting pressure on the vascular structures.
- Obese people and those prone to long hours of sitting are also more likely to develop piles.
- An obstruction or abnormal growth on the way to the anal canal can also lead to piles.
- Other factors contributing to the pathological condition of piles include age and vascular structure guarding the anal passage lacking in valves.
A fistula is an abnormal, tube-like connection that forms between two organs or vessels that are lined with epithelial cells.
Examples of naturally occurring fistulas are those that form between the end of the bowel and skin near the anus (anal fistula) or between the intestine and the vagina (enterovaginal fistula). Fistulas may also form between the rectum and the vagina and this is called a rectovaginal fistula. Although fistulas are usually caused by injury or surgery, they may also form after an infection has led to severe inflammation. Inflammatory bowel conditions such as Chron’s disease and ulcerative colitis are examples of conditions that lead to fistulas forming between two loops of intestine.
The signs and symptoms of hemorrhoids depend on the type present. Internal hemorrhoids usually present with painless rectal bleeding, while external hemorrhoids may produce few symptoms or if thrombosed significant pain and swelling in the area of the anus.
Fissure is an anal tear, crack or ulcer in the lining of the anal canal - a cut or tear in the anus that extends into the anal canal. It is a common cause of red blood in the stool (feces) and toilet paper. According to rectal (colorectal) doctors, approximately one tenth of all their patient visits are for anal fissures. Patients commonly feel pain during and after a bowel movement.
Fissures can affect people of any age or sex equally and is the most common cause of rectal bleeding in babies and children.
Prolapse is a common condition in medicine which occurs when the structures designed to keep organs in place weaken or stretch, causing them to literally “fall out of place”.
Some of the most common symptoms of Prolapse include::
- Lower back pain
- A dragging sensation or feeling of ‘something falling out’
- Stress incontinence (where small amounts of urine are passed while sneezing, coughing or exercise)
- Difficult or painful sex
