Rilo Forte - Patient Information


Piles is a term meaning hemorrhoids. Piles (hemorrhoids) is pain caused by venous swelling at or inside the anal sphincter. It is because of the debility of the bowels (large intestines). Veins around the anus or lower rectum get swollen and inflamed. This causes itching, pain, and sometimes bleeding. Sometimes enlarged veins protrude into the anorectal area, either internal or externally visible.

They are either the result of poor sphincter tone or sphincter hypertonicity.
Although hemorrhoids are definitely irritating and sometimes debilitating, they are almost never life-threatening or a symptom of something worse. Healthy diets, avoiding toilet straining, and other lifestyle changes can often prevent hemorrhoids.

Hemorrhoids are either inside the anus (internal) or under the skin around the anus (external)
