WHAT ARE HEMORRHOIDS?
Hemorrhoids are veins that are painful and swollen and are located in the lower rectum or anus. Hemorrhoids are common during pregnancy and after childbirth, they are the result of pressure on the anus, this pressure causes the veins to swell and hurt, especially when sitting.
The diagnosis is usually made by examining the area of the rectum. If necessary, some other studies such as anascopy, fecal occult blood test, or sigmoidoscopy will be ordered.
