Frequently Asked Questions


What are Piles?

Swollen or/and inflamed veins in the rectum and anus region, when if not treated can cause pain or bleeding. Piles are also known as Hemorrhoids. Piles can be formed on the blood vessels, support tissue, muscle, elastic fibers present in the rectum or anus.

  4. Pain and discomfort while passing bowel
  5. Circumstantial Pain i.e., while sitting

How Piles are diagnosed?

In most cases, piles are self diagnosable. However, if an individual is not sure about the condition, he/she can consult a primary care provider. The doctor may use sigmoidoscopy to visualize internal piles or hemorrhoids.


What are the main causes of Piles?

Piles are caused due to increased pressure on rectum or anus and hence, the tissues are swollen. This can happen in the following conditions:

  1. Chronic constipation
  2. Chronic diarrhea
  3. Lifting heavyweights
  4. During pregnancy
  5. Straining or applying more pressure while passing stools
  6. Heredity


Which food to avoid during Piles or its treatment?

  1. Bread, bagels
  2. Milk, cheese, or any other dairy products
  3. Processed and canned food
  4. Meat
  5. Beverages like coffee, tea, and other caffeinated drinks


Is Piles Treatment painful?

Piles are a condition that is painful with discomfort in daily activities. However, the treatment is not painful and usually gives symptomatic relief to the patient.


What are the different treatment approaches for Piles Treatment?

  1. Lifestyle changes such as diet changes and losing body weights
  2. Medications like over the counter (OTC) drugs, corticosteroids, laxatives
  3. Exercises 


Who are the specialists for treating piles?

Nonsurgical treatment is usually self-treatable and/or a primary health care provider can treat the piles' condition. Whereas, for the surgical approach, the specialists are Gastroenterologist or a General Surgeon who is well experienced in performing piles surgery.


What happens if piles are untreated?

If piles remain untreated then smaller hemorrhoids or piles may go away with the time. Whereas, in severe conditions, the vein can protrude out of the anus and can bleed heavily with discomfort and pain. 


How long does it take to heal piles after treatment?

Usually, Piles takes up to 7-15 days to heal depending on the grade, condition, and the treatment option opted for.
