A haemorrhoid, in common term is referred as Piles. They are inflammation of veins in the anus and lower rectum.
Haemorrhoids are most common among adults aged between 45 and 65. However, this does not mean that young people and children do not get them. Haemorrhoids are much more common among men than women. A woman is most likely to get them when she is pregnant.

Strained bowel movements.
Constipation or chronic diarrhoea.
