Haemorrhoids (piles) are blood filled swellings located in the anal canal. About 80% of adults over 30 will have at least one episode of haemorrhoids some time during their lives.
Haemorrhoid diseases may present with the following symptoms: anal bleeding, mucous discharge, itching and wounds in the intergluteal cleft.
Four grades of haemorrhoids (from 1 to 4) can be distinguished on a rectal examination or proctoscopy.
