What Do Hemroids Look Like?
Article by Charlie Houston
This is a common question that comes up in conversations and articles about hemroids. There is a picture of a hemroid located here (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hemorrhoids). It is very graphic so if you have a weak stomach…you have been warned!
Hemorrhoids are a mass of tissue within the anal canal that contain blood vessels. They also contain the supporting tissues made up of muscle fibers. Hemroids are usually found in the last four centimeters between the rectum and the anus.
A hemroid can vary in size depending on the person. They may be from the size of a pea to as large as a walnut. They may be smooth or they may appear wrinkled. At times they occur as a single hemroid while at other times they may appear in clusters.
Color can be an important indicator as to what type of hemroid you might have. Reddish pink hemroids are normally prolapsed internal hemroids. Thrombosed hemroids are purple and blue or dark red. Brownish hemroids are often an indication of external hemroids.
While hemroids are present in everyone, they are not a problem for everyone. It is only when they enlarge, that they cause problems and are considered an abnormal condition or disease.
They become a problem in approximately 4% of the general population. Both men and women may be afflicted with this condition.
The best cure for hemroids is to avoid an occurence in the first place. Constipation is widely believed to be a prevalent cause of hemroid swelling. Exercise,eating foods high in fiber and getting sufficient hydration will help to keep stools soft so they pass easily, thus decreasing the pressure caused by straining.
When hemroids do occur it doesn’t matter what they look like, what caused them or what color they are. What matters is “How can I get relief from this pain?” To learn more about how to prevent hemroids and how to treat them when they are painful, visit Hemroid Treatment Central.
