During pregnancy due to constipation
Heredity (from parents to the children)
Excessive use of meat, eggs, fish, wine, etc.
Sedentary habits (to sit at the same place for long time)
Sedentary occupation, during long journeys
Liver disease (due to portal vein obstruction)
Faulty bowel movement, e.g. spending long time in the toilet, excessive use of laxatives and purgatives (strong laxatives), straining during defecation.
Whatever the reason may be, the tissues supporting the haemorrhoidal veins; stretch and hence rectal veins dilate; their walls become thin and piles polyps develop, which on more stretching and pressure bleed and protrude out of the anus.
If piles or haemorrhoids lead to cancer.
There is no relationship between piles and cancer, but the symptoms of bleeding look like to those of colorectal cancer and other diseases of intestine e.g. ulcerative colitis etc.
So, it is necessary that all the present symptoms are investigated properly by the physician especially proctologist trained in treating diseases of the colon and rectum.
Patient should not rely on self-medication or the treatment given by ordinary physician, who without proper check-up gives the medicines which sometime may not be of much use.
So, the specialist doctor first evaluates the symptoms after check-up and prescribes the proper effective treatment.
