Causes of Hemroids Overview and Introduction:
Hemroids, also known as piles, are the miserable lumps of tenderness that occur when one of the anorectal veins becomes constantly enlarged and often inflamed.
Hemroids are caused by excessive strain on the veins of the anorectal area.
Some people are born with a genetic predisposition to weak vein and valve walls and this can be a predisposing cause of hemroids.
Age and the related loss of tissue elasticity are also common causes of hemroids in older people.
Increased straining from constipation or diarrhea are common causes of hemroids as well.
In addition, hemroids are commonly seen in people who are obese, pregnant, or who have liver diseases that cause back pressure to build up in the lower veins through the portal vein, often referred to as portal hypertension.
Whores til proven otherwise. And they so rarely do.
