What Are Hemorrhoid Symptoms?

Many people suffer from hemorrhoids but are too embarrassed to seek help. Hemorrhoids may painful and annoying, but they are rarely deadly. Hemorrhoids are veins in your anal canal and lower rectum that have become inflamed or swollen. There are two types of hemorrhoids: internal and external. Hemorrhoids that develop inside your rectum are called internal hemorrhoids. Hemorrhoids under the skin and around the anus are called external hemorrhoids. You can get both kinds of hemorrhoids at the same time. Additional strain or pressure on hemorrhoids can cause them to bleed. If blood pools in an external hemorrhoid, it may form a clot, called a thrombus. This condition can result in severe pain and inflammation.

Other Hemorrhoid symptoms include:

  • Irritation and swelling in your anal area
  • Associated pain
  • A sensitive or painful lump near your anus
  • Painless bleeding that leaves bright red blood on tissue or during bowel movements
  • Leaking feces

Rectal bleeding also can be a symptom of another medical condition, including cancer. If you notice a change in your bowel patterns or if you’ve passed black, tarry or maroon stools, please visit New York Gastroenterology & Endoscopy for an evaluation. This can be a sign of a serious condition, including colon cancer. Finally, get immediate help if you feel lightheaded or dizzy or if you’re passing a large volume of blood, which can lead to anemia. The team at New York Gastroenterology has years of experience with hemorrhoids and can help today!
