New Report Shares Details about the Hemorrhoids Treatment Market

Hemorrhoids is a gastrointestinal disorder mostly afflicting adults. Hemorrhoids are caused by the swelling of veins near the anal tissue. Usually this tissue acts like a cushion, but during the strain caused by obesity or pregnancy, these veins are pressurized and they swell leading to the formation of hemorrhoids inside or outside the anal region. Generally, hemorrhoids are known as piles. Hemorrhoids found inside the rectum are called internal hemorrhoids and those which grow in the anal area, outside the rectum are called external hemorrhoids.

The symptoms of the disease are uncomfortable conditions like bleeding in the stools, itching and pain during bowel movements, and swelling and inflammation in the anal area. It is estimated that around 33% of population under the age of 50 and 50% of population above the age of 50 suffer from this condition. However, only one-third of the affected population seek medical help, out of which most prefer OTC treatment. Proper diagnosis is crucial if symptoms related to hemorrhoids are felt. Diagnosis can be performed by a doctor for complete rectal examination, a proctoscopic examination, and colonoscopy if required because certain other disorders like rectal cancer or colon cancer have similar symptoms like hemorrhoids.
