Piles

Piles or hemorrhoids are one of the most common ailments in today's world. It is a varicose and inflamed condition of the veins, inside or just outside the rectum. In the case of external piles, there is a lot of pain but not much bleeding. In the case of internal piles, there is discharge of blood. In some cases the veins burst and this condition is termed as bleeding piles. Though disturbing and discomforting, piles are never a serious health problem.
