What Do Hemorrhoids Look Like

Although we don't talk about it, hemorrhoids is a common condition. In the USA alone, it is estimated that almost 50% of Americans have this condition by the age of around 40 to 50 years old. It is a safe assumption that up to more than 50% of the world's population are affected by hemorrhoids at some time in their life.

Most of these people with hemorrhoids do not even know they have it as mild hemorrhoids will clear up on its own. Only a relatively small number of people actually seek treatment due to the personal nature of this condition. It is estimated that only about 500 thousand people in America are medically treated for hemorrhoids.

As mentioned, many people do not know that they have hemorrhoids especially if they suffer from this condition for the first time. Many do not notice anything wrong when they feel pain and discomfort in the anal area. Therefore, they do not seek any treatment or take any necessary action. Before they know it, their condition worsens and gets more painful. More severe types of hemorrhoids include bleeding hemorrhoid, thrombosed hemorrhoid , prolapsed hemorrhoids and fissures. All these require surgery and the worst thing is that relapse may occur after the surgery.

It is important to realize that you actually have hemorrhoids so that necessary treatment can be given. Do not delay treatment, as the condition will get worse if no action is taken and no changes are made in your dietary lifestyle.
