About Hemorrhoids (or jump to About Phlebitis)
Hemorrhoids are swollen veins in the rectum or anus. As stools pass, the
vein walls stretch and become irritated. The irritated veins itch, hurt or
bleed. If the hemorrhoids pass to the outside during passage of a stool,
they are prolapsed.
Hemorrhoids can be internal or external. Internal hemorrhoids lie deeper
inside the rectum, where there are fewer nerves, so they often do not
hurt. Usually, bleeding is the only symptom of internal hemorrhoids.
External hemorrhoids are visible
