When a vein in your anus or lower rectum swells, it’s called a haemorrhoid. A haemorrhoid that bulges outward from the anus is known as a prolapsed haemorrhoid, and it can be quite painful.
A haemorrhoid can become prolapsed when the tissue that holds it in place weakens. There are several possible causes and risk factors for this weakening of the connective tissue.
If you need something more permanent then there are a few interventional procedures to consider. These range from surgical to non-surgical.

Internal haemorrhoids are actually swollen veins and their support tissues, situated in the lower part of your rectum. Sometimes the blood vessels and associated tissues become weak and stretch so thin that they bulge and become irritated
External haemorrhoids are different from internal haemorrhoids in two important ways: the first and most obvious difference is where they are located – external haemorrhoids, as the name suggests, are on the outside of your anus. Internal haemorrhoids are on the inside.
A thrombosed haemorrhoid, is the medical term for a haemorrhoid that has become swollen due to a small blood clot within the haemorrhoid. The word ‘thrombosis’ means clotting.
If you suffer with haemorrhoids, then understanding how the medical profession grades the different sizes and nature of your piles could be vital in how you approach the treatment of your specific condition.
