Listen when your body tells you telltale signs and symptoms of hemorrhoids. These are the most common symptoms that you need to pay attention to:
Bleeding is actually the most common sign/symptom of internal hemorrhoids, and is frequently noticed after a bowel movement. It could be seen as tiny drops in the toilet bowl or floor, or blotches on the tissue paper or even mixed in the stool. There usually is no pain when internal hemorrhoids bleed. External hemorrhoids that have thrombosed, or formed a clot, may also bleed and are often painful.
A hard, bulging lump in the anal area is often due to a thrombosed (has formed a blood clot) external hemorrhoid. It is usually a sudden condition that appears quickly and could be quite painful. Internal hemorrhoids that has prolapsed, or fall out of the anal canal, can also appear as a bulging lump. This lump may appear during a bowel movement and disappear after a bowel movement or it may remain outside of the anal canal until it is tucked back inside. In more severe disease, the hemorrhoid cannot be returned to the anal canal.
Itching is another symptom of hemorrhoids, and can be the result of difficulty getting clean after a bowel movement because of external hemorrhoids. Itching may also be caused by repeated irritation of the delicate tissue covering a prolapsed hemorrhoid.
Pain is often caused by a thrombosis, or blood clot, in an external hemorrhoid but can also be caused by a prolapsed internal hemorrhoid. The pain caused by this condition may sometimes affect the daily living conditions and functions of the person.
Hemorrhoids can make it difficult to get completely clean after a bowel movement as evidenced in soiling of undergarments. It is very important for certain types of hemorrhoids to be treated within the first 72 hours after the first signs and symptoms appear. These symptoms may be due to other more serious conditions.
