In Western Medicine
It is not known why hemorrhoids enlarge. There are few theories about the cause, including not enough intake of fiber, prolonged sitting on the toilet, and chronic straining to have a bowel movement such as constipation. None of these theories has strong experimental support. However, pregnancy is a clear cause of enlarged hemorrhoids though, but again, the reason is not clear. Tumors in the pelvis may cause enlargement of hemorrhoids by pressing on the veins draining upwards from the anal canal.
In TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine)
TCM sees the cause of hemorrhoids in Damp Heat which affects the Spleen and Stomach, which in turn causes a reduction of Qi (Chi). A shortage of the vital Qi results in a loss of muscle control and prolapse of the anus.
Eating too much greasy spicy food, chronic constipation and often forced defecation, diarrhea, lack of sleep and low fiber diet habits increase the likeliness of hemorrhoids. Other risk factors are sitting for long periods of time, such as drivers or office clerks, pregnant women due to increased abdominal pressure, straining during bowel movement, excessive intake of spicy greasy food, pregnancy, chronic constipation or diarrhea and anal intercourse.
These factors may affect the blood circulation around the anus, resulting in the swelling of the blood vessels swelling and vascular tissue, forming hemorrhoids. Hemorrhoids can either be internal or external.
Different individuals may experience different symptoms, including:
- Early phase of hemorrhoids are constipation, a sensation of fullness, usually described as feeling the urge to have a bowel movement even when there is no stool. Straining worsens the discomfort
- Second phase of hemorrhoids, including little bright or dark red blood in the toilet bowl, anal itching and burning
- Third phase of hemorrhoid has prolapsed and can be seen outside the anus
- Late or serious symptoms; there may be swelling, pain and a lot of red blood in the toilet bowl, One or more hard tender lumps near the anus
NOTE: some of these symptoms may appear with Colon Polyps, please check with the primary physician to confirm
