What are Hemorrhoids?
Hemorrhoids are swollen veins and tissue located in the anal canal. They are caused by a build-up of pressure in the pelvic and rectal area.
This pressure forces blood into the veins located in the anal canal where it pools and results in swelling. This causes pain, itching, discomfort and more unpleasant sensations.
