Hemorrhoids are as casual as they are common. By the age of 50, one in every two persons has suffered from hemorrhoids.
You have pathological hemorrhoids when, the veins in your lower rectum or anus are swollen and inflamed. Hemorrhoids can be internal or external.
Internal hemorrhoids are located inside your rectum. You are dealing with internal piles, if your stool is smeared with bright red blood. You will also have blood on the tissue paper and in the toilet bowl. Other symptoms might include: a mucous discharge, itchiness, fecal incontinence and a perianal mass.
Fecal incontinence is a state, in which, you no longer have control over your bowel movements. Bowel movement means taking a dump.
A perianal mass can be seen on the surface of the anus, if the swollen rectal veins have prolapsed. Prolapse is a medical jargon which means out of shape. The term is used to describe tissues which have dislocated from their normal positions.
Be careful, when you have blood on your stool, on the tissue paper and in the toilet bowl. These symptoms do not conclusively indicate an internal pile. These symptoms (bright red blood on stool, blood on tissue paper, blood in toilet bowl) are also the exact symptoms for anal fissures.
If you have only these three symptoms to work with, how can you tell, if you are dealing with an internal hemorrhoid or an anal fissure?
Anal fissures are painful. Internal piles are not painful. Only on extremely rare conditions are internal piles painful. So, if you have the above three symptoms but you are not in pain, it means you are probably dealing with internal hemorrhoids.
Internal piles have 4stages of development. The developmental stages are Grade 1, Grade 2, Grade 3 and Grade 4.
Make sure you get treatment during the Grade 1 and Grade 2 stages. Once you enter the Grade 3 stage of development, your piles might require a surgical intervention.
External piles occur on the dentate line. The dentate line is the realm of the anus. To be anatomically precise, the dentate line is the last 1/3 of the anus, close to the surface.
You are dealing with external hemorrhoids, when your blood vessels in this region swell.
The swellings of your anal blood vessels have a peanut-like shape. You can easily diagnose an external hemorrhoid with the help of a mirror.
The swellings are usually thrombosed. A thrombosis is the blockage of blood circulation in blood vessels. This blockage is caused by the clotting of blood cells.
External hemorrhoids can be a real pain in the ass _ literally. In addition, the inflammations often cause hygienic problems. This in tend produces itchiness and irritation in the anal region.
It is more irritating than the buzz of a tropical mosquito in your ear.
Treatment by Medical Professionals
The four most frequently used piles treatments by medical professionals are surgery, rubber band ligation, cauterization and sclerotherapy. In general, these methods are safe, but in very rare occasions, patients might develop the side-effect of perianal sepsis.
In sclerotherapy, your doctor will inject phenol into your hemorrhoids. Phenol is one of the most potent sclerosing agents. Phenol causes the swollen veins to shrink and the hemorrhoid eventually shrivels up.
The success rate is approximately 70%.
Your doctor has a couple of cauterization options. The most frequently used cauterization methods include: laser surgery, cryosurgery, infrared radiation and electrocautery.
The success rate for infrared radiation is not very impressive, especially when, you hemorrhoids have attained the Grade 3 or Grade 4 stage of development.
Rubber Band Ligation
In rubber band ligation, your doctor cuts the blood supply to the hemorrhoidal vessels. Your doctor cuts the blood supply by applying elastic bands at least 1cm above the dentate line.
Rubber band ligation is very effective for treating Grade 1, 2 and 3 internal piles. The success rate is approximately 87%.
Surgery is the option of last resort because of its intrusive nature. In addition, a number of nefarious complications are often associated with surgery. These complications include: profuse bleeding, fecal incontinence, mucosal ectropion, anal stenosis, anal strictures, infection and possible damage to urinary system.
Your doctor has a wide array of surgical techniques to choose from.
Your surgeon could perform excisional hemorrhoidectomy. In this procedure, your hemorrhoids are literally cut off. That is why this surgery is reserved only for extreme cases.
Your surgeon could also use ultrasound in a procedure known as Doppler-guided transanal hemorrhoidal dearterialization. In this procedure, the arteries supplying the hemorrhoids are tied off and the prolapsed tissues are sutured back into their original locations.
Your surgeon might also use stapled hemorrhoidectomy. In the procedure, the largest prolapsed tissues are removed. The other hemorrhoidal tissues are sutured back into their normal locations.
You would probably have to administer glyceryl trinitrate after any of these surgical interventions. Glyceryl trinitrate ointment helps relief pain and speeds up recovery.
