Haemorrhoids or hemorrhoids are local swellings that contain enlarged blood vessels and are located in and around the anus. Internal haemorrhoids usually do not cause any pain, but they can be very annoying. External haemorrhoids may cause pain.
Haemorrhoids usually occur due to overweight, difficult bowel movements, constipation or during pregnancy. These situations all cause extra pressure on the intestines and anus. Too much pressure may damage the blood vessels stuated near the anus. These damages are what we call haemorrhoids.
