Health Tip: Signs of Hemorrhoids

(HealthDay News) -- Hemorrhoids are swollen veins in the rectum. Also known as piles, hemorrhoids affect an estimated three of four adults, says Mayo Clinic.

Signs of hemorrhoids include:

  • Bleeding during bowel movements.

  • Itching or irritation in the anal region.

  • Pain or discomfort.

  • Anal swelling.

  • A lump near the anus.

Many people make lifestyle changes or try home treatments to get relief from symptoms. Talk to your doctor about what's best for you.
