Haemorrhoids develop when vein-filled, cushion-like areas of tissue in the lining of the anus become swollen. They are often caused by pressure in the bowel or hard stools (faeces). Haemorrhoids can be treated with medicines, diet and anal care. Haemorrhoids are very common. They can develop in anyone at any age, but are rare in young people under 20 years of age. They are an especially common problem for pregnant women. Haemorrhoids inside the anal opening, on the wall of the anal canal are called internal haemorrhoids. Haemorrhoids at the anal opening are called external haemorrhoids.
