Hemorrhoids are veins, normally present in and around the anus and lower rectum that have become swollen due to stretching under pressure. These are very common in both men and women, and about half the population has hemorrhoids by age 50. Hemorrhoids are also common in pregnant women.
Hemorrhoids are either internal (inside the anus) or external (under the skin around the anus). Hemorrhoids may develop as a result of repeated straining during bowel movements, pregnancy, heredity, aging, and chronic constipation or diarrhea.
