It might be a reality but a surprising truth. Everyone has haemorrhoids (clumps, masses, and cushions of tissue) present in our body. All is good until the hemorrhoidal cushions become big because of inflammation.This is the point where we have piles.

Piles are swellings which develop around and inside the back passage. Symptoms vary between persistent and painful to temporary and mild. In some of the cases, symptoms settle down without any medication.

In the majority of circumstances, piles are successfully cured with a proper fluid intake, over-the-counter medications, and by following a fibrous diet. Piles are also removed surgically. Out of ten people suffering from piles, one needs surgical intervention.

Despite great achievements in health care, a large population is still struggling with the discomfort and pain that piles bring in its wake. It is important to understand the cause of piles if one wants to avoid or speed up the healing procedure. An early detection and prevention control the condition before the harm.

Causes of painful Piles:

1. Lack of Nutritious Diets

Lack of healthy diet, particularly fibrous intake results in constipation and strain amid the bowel movement. Spicy food, higher quantities of meat, junk food, and lower fluid intake results in constipation, leading to piles.  

2. Obesity 

Excess weight is a major cause of numerous of diseases, including piles. Additional body weight applies excess pressure on the muscles of your anal wall. This extra pressure causes nerves to protrude out of the layers. 

3.  Pregnancy 

Along with extra weight, fetus also tends to put extra stress over the rectal veins, resulting into swollen veins and arteries, causing to hemorrhoids. Some other factors such as a change in eating habits, sitting for long periods and lack of physical activity also leads to developing piles. 

4. Stress

Bowel movement is usually related to mental well-being. Stress can have a negative effect on the regular bowel movement. This can result in constipation leading to piles. 

5. Sitting Jobs

People who work at a desk and sitting on a chair for hours are more prone to piles. While sitting at the same place for a longer period increases the pressure on your buttocks increasing the risk of piles.  

6. Strain During Bowel Movement 

It is the primary reason for haemorrhoids. The strain during the bowel movement pushes the blood into arteries and rectal veins. This results into the swollen veins, leading to feeble and weak anal muscles. If the muscles become weaker, they start bulging out of the walls. 

7. Constipation  

The strain faced by people in the toilet is because of persistent constipation. In the process of ejecting the nerves swell and many times ruptures. Ruptured hemorrhoid starts to bleed if the condition worsens.  

8. Excess intake of Tea, Coffee

The lack of fibrous food into our diet and cups and cups of green tea, tea or coffee are disastrous for the regular bowel movements.
