Haemorrhoids (piles) are swellings containing enlarged blood vessels found inside or around the rectum and anus.
In numerous cases, haemorrhoids don’t cause symptoms and some people don’t notice or realise that they have them.
Haemorrhoids are not usually painful, unless their blood supply slows down or is interrupted.
