Bleeding and Pain

Hemorrhoids are swollen blood vessels in and around the anus and rectum. Signs of bleeding hemorrhoids include bright, red blood staining the toilet paper or feces.

Hemorrhoids often remain inside the anal canal, but sometimes they bulge outward from the anus and become visible outside of the body. This can lead to severe pain and bleeding.

Hemorrhoids can bleed due to the following reasons:

  • Straining during a bowel movement
  • Chronic diarrhea or constipation
  • Sitting or standing for a long time
  • During pregnancy
  • Lifting a heavy object
  • If a blood clot blocks

What are the complications of hemorrhoids?

Hemorrhoids can be uncomfortable and painful, but they don’t tend to cause serious problems. Although rare, some people with hemorrhoids may develop the following issues:

  • Anemia.
  • Blood clots in external hemorrhoids.
  • Infection.
  • Skin tags (flap of tissue that hangs off skin).
  • Strangulated hemorrhoids (muscles in the anus cut off blood flow to a prolapsed internal hemorrhoid).
