What are the symptoms of hemorrhoids?


Generally the most common symptoms of hemorrhoids or piles are bleeding especially during bowel movements, rectal pain or itching.  However since there are external and internal hemorrhoids, it will be beneficial to understand the symptoms of the different types of hemorrhoids.

    • Rectal bleeding with signs of bright red blood seen in toilet bowl, bright red blood streaks on toilet paper or blood on stool surface.

    • Skin irritation caused by secreted mucus from large external hemorrhoids

    • Itching caused by seeping mucus from internal hemorrhoids

    • Discomfort and feelings of needing to have another bowel movement right after passing stool. 

    • Severe pain caused by strangulated hemorrhoid.  In most cases, internal hemorrhoids are rarely painful however if severe pain occurred then seek emergency treatment.
