Problem too often overlooked due to embarrassment or lack of knowledge and instead fundamental to be able to recognize and deal with (it is in fact more frequent than you think).
Because of this reluctance to address the issue, in fact, many people find themselves living with the problem without knowing enough about the causes, symptoms and above all solutions.
So let's try to find out more together…
HEMORRHOIDS: WHAT ARE THEY?
Hemorrhoids are spongy pads made up of veins in the anal canal. We all have them and they are very useful for the natural functions of continence and evacuation.
According to their position they are divided into internal and external .
Under normal conditions they are not felt but when they become inflamed they can become very swollen and painful. In this case we speak of hemorrhoidal disease or pathology (commonly called "hemorrhoids") which can be classified according to the severity of the clinical picture into 4 stages or degrees .
1st DEGREE: there is inflammation accompanied by internal hemorrhoidal congestion without external prolapse. Symptoms such as bleeding, discomfort, pain during evacuation, etc. tend to occur.
2nd DEGREE: hemorrhoidal inflammation and congestion are more pronounced. There are also phenomena of external prolapse under effort, which then returns spontaneously at the end of the effort. Manifestations such as pain, bleeding, etc. may also occur at this stage.
3rd DEGREE: there is a strong inflammation and a significant haemorrhoidal congestion. Prolapse, always caused by effort, falls into this degree only with the help of the hand. There may always be symptoms of pain, discomfort, itching, bleeding, etc.
4th DEGREE: there is the maximum level of inflammation and hemorrhoidal congestion. The prolapse is always present and cannot be brought back.
In most cases, the disorder can be treated with topical remedies, oral therapies, and dietary and lifestyle modifications.
In the most serious cases, however, surgery is also necessary.
HEMORRHOIDS: WHO ARE THEY AFFECTED?
Hemorrhoidal disease is a very common problem and sometimes tends to occur even several times in the course of life.
It is estimated that around 50% of the population has suffered from it, suffers from it or will suffer from it.
It affects both men and women without distinction.
It is more common after the age of 40/50 but we are increasingly seeing a general lowering of the average age of those affected .
Why do they strike more at an older age ? Because in this period we suffer more from constipation and the walls of the blood vessels tend to be less elastic.
HEMORRHOIDS: WHAT ARE THE CAUSES?
The factors that combine to determine, promote or worsen the inflammation of hemorrhoids are different, including
- Chronic constipation
- Sedentary lifestyle : because it favors constipation and leads to spending a lot of time sitting
- Excessive pushing to evacuate or a long stay sitting on the toilet : for this reason it is advisable to avoid spending hours on the toilet reading or looking at the mobile phone
- Unbalanced diet , low in fiber and with little water intake
- Family predisposition
- Impaired venous circulation
HEMORRHOIDS: WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS?
The main symptoms of hemorrhoidal disease are:
- feeling swollen and inflamed
- discomfort during evacuation
- pain , to varying degrees
- bleeding : very common symptom, it can also occur without feeling pain. Blood is usually found on toilet paper, in the toilet bowl, or even in stool
As we have already said, hemorrhoids often tend to recur and those who suffer from it alternate between acute crises and periods of relative relief.
In any case it is essential not to underestimate any of the symptoms described here and to act immediately by contacting your doctor and/or the specialist of reference, i.e. the proctologist .
HEMORRHOIDS: HOW TO FIND RELIEF?
- Make diet and lifestyle corrections right away
- Avoid irritating foods such as alcohol, spicy foods, spices, chocolate, etc
- Pay particular attention to intimate hygiene
- Take supplements to counteract constipation and venous stasis
- Use decongestant topical remedies
But can hemorrhoids be prevented?
A lot can be done first of all by trying to avoid the onset of constipation which is the main triggering factor of hemorrhoidal disease. In particular, it is useful to include a lot of vegetables in your diet and increase your fiber intake .
Another golden rule to prevent hemorrhoids is to practice physical activity regularly , with the foresight to avoid sports that require excessive abdominal effort or frequent trauma to the "b side".
