Piles, also known as hemorrhoids, are swollen veins located in the lower rectum or anus. They can cause symptoms such as itching, rectal bleeding, and pain or discomfort during bowel movements. Piles are common and can affect people of all ages, although they are more likely to occur in people over the age of 50.

No matter the intensity of the situation, an ailment like piles always commands a visit to a specialist, who will treat the same with utmost care.
There are a number of ways to treat piles, depending on the severity of the condition. In mild cases, over-the-counter creams and ointments can be effective in relieving symptoms. If the piles are more severe, a GP may prescribe steroidal creams or ointments, which can reduce inflammation. If these treatments are not effective, a GP may refer the patient to a specialist for further treatment. This may involve using a laser to remove the piles, or injecting them with a chemical solution to shrink them. In some cases, surgery may be necessary to remove the piles.
