50% of the population will suffer from hemorrhoids during their lifetime so many bloggers are going to be affected. Hemorrhoids develop when the normal veins surrounding the anus become abnormally enlarged or swollen. There are both external and internal hemorrhoids.
External hemorrhoids rarely cause problems unless a clotted or thrombosed hemorrhoid develops. This complication is painful and you would need prompt medical attention. Internal hemorrhoids can become large, sagging veins that may bulge out of the anus during bowel movements.
Hemorrhoids have a variety of causes including constipation, straining to pass a stool, standing or sitting for long periods, pregnancy, breathing incorrectly when lifting heavy weights or medical conditions. Along with any hemorrhoid treatment, a high bulk fiber diet, plenty of liquids and good home care will help to heal your hemorrhoids.
