Hemorrhoids affect about 75% of the population by age 50. And, they are common in pregnancy. While hemorrhoids are not dangerous, they can bleed and become painful when they are in the skin around the anus. A hemorrhoid is a cluster of swollen and inflamed veins in the lowest most part of the rectum.
The hemorrhoid may be internal, inside the lower rectum, and may protrude through the anus. The only symptom may be bleeding after a bowel movement, or blood in the stool. However, when the hemorrhoid protrudes it can collect mucus and microscopic amounts of stool that can cause external itching, pain and discomfort.
External hemorrhoids develop in the skin that surrounds the anus. Sometimes blood clots can occur in external hemorrhoids (Thrombosis). This can cause bleeding, swelling and a hard lump around the anus. When the clot resolves extra skin is left behind and it can become irritated and itchy. Rubbing and cleaning around the anus can make the symptoms worse.
Often the symptoms disappear after a few days, and some people are not aware they even have a hemorrhoid because they never have symptoms.
