There are many myths surround around hemorrhoids. One of them is, "Internal Hemorrhoids Cause Cancer". We need to understand that hemorrhoids and its reagents are very different from that of cancers. They do no co-relate and thus hemorrhoids may have painful physical nature but it's not at all life threatening. Let's understand what hemorrhoids are in real and how amazing can it be or how life changing it can be.
Hemorrhoids: Hemorrhoids grow on your body when the rectal skin membrane is stretched on many possible occasions. This makes the blood vessel vulnerable and thus causes bleeding during bowel movements. They grow into a lump and sometimes cause pain and sometimes they are painless. To have a better understanding about their characteristics we must go through their classifications. There are majorly two types of hemorrhoids:
Internal Hemorrhoids: The hemorrhoids in this case grow in the lower rectal region. They cannot be seen from outside and in most of the cases they are painless. Hemorrhoids and painless is like getting a life line because hemorrhoids are known for their painful nature. The internal hemorrhoids are painless in nature because there are no pain sensing nerves in the rectum and thus they carry the usual hemorrhoid properties but do not pain like others. They mostly bleed during bowel movements and can even prolapse.
External Hemorrhoids: The hemorrhoid's site of growth in this situation is around the anal openings. They have the same properties like the internal hemorrhoids have. They do prolapse and are known as the most painful medical conditions in the medical science.
