Many people think that hemorrhoids are a condition that only affect older people, or pregnant women. In fact, more than half of all Indians over age 30 will develop hemorrhoids at some time in their lives..
What is a hemorrhoid?
A hemorrhoid is actually a form of varicose vein. The veins in and around the rectum and anus become swollen. The two forms of hemorrhoids are internal and external.
Internal. This form of hemorrhoid is located beneath the lining in the anus. Internal hemorrhoids may or may not cause pain, but are likely to bleed and protrude from the anus during bowel movements. An internal hemorrhoid may prolapse, or extend outside the anus and be quite painful.

Rectal bleeding should always be checked out by a Qualified Surgeon, even if it is suspected to be from a hemorrhoid. The surgeon may need to take a closer look at the area with an anoscope. An anoscope is a small tube with a light that when inserted into the rectum can help the physician see any internal hemorrhoids
