World Piles Day: No Piles, Only Smiles

No Piles. Only Smiles.

Every year, 20th November is celebrated as ‘World Piles day’ with an intention of spreading the awareness about Piles.

Piles are one of the most common problems of the rectum, affecting both men and women. Piles also called as Hemorrhoids are troublesome but can be treated.

Many people suffer from piles in silence for a long period of time before seeking medical help. Many fear of surgery but majority of the piles issues can be treated without surgery says Dr. Parameshwara C M – Top Colo-rectal Surgeon & the Best doctor for piles treatment in India.

How many people have Piles?

It’s not really surprising, 75 percent of people suffer from piles at some point in their lives. Most susceptible to the development of piles are pregnant women or women after childbirth. 5 out 10 pregnant women are struggling with piles during pregnancy.

People who eat low fiber diet, having chronic constipation and people who follow sedentary lifestyle are especially prone to Piles.

How Piles are dangerous?

  1. Piles by itself cause significant blood loss. Chronic blood loss can lead to anemia, with which you don’t have enough red blood cells to carry oxygen.
  2. Internal Hemorrhoids can collapse when their anal muscles cut off the blood supply, which leads to blood clots, infections, and sepsis.
  3. Bleeding from hemorrhoids can provoke heart attack in people with bad coronary arteries.
  4. Assuming that your symptoms are just Piles without colorectal specialist diagnosis could be really dangerous. This is because the similar symptoms of hemorrhoids can lead to many other diseases.
  5. Rectal bleeding, the most common symptom of piles could also be a sign of colorectal cancer or anal cancer.
  6. External hemorrhoids experience pain but sometimes it can also be a sign of Anal Fissure or tear at the opening of the anus.
  7. Pain at the anal area also points to a Fistula disease, an abnormal tunnel between two organs.

Who are more prone to Piles?

EVERYONE. Yes, everyone of us are more prone to piles.

  1. Piles during pregnancy are quite common due to the level of certain hormones in your body. The weight of the baby as it grows in the womb, putting more pressure on veins also increases the likelihood of suffering from hemorrhoids in pregnancy.
  2. Drivers are more prone to piles as they spend long periods of time sitting. As a result, drivers are more prone to developing Hemorrhoids.
  3. IT crowd and others with desk jobs, who sit for longer period of time at their work stations are more vulnerable to hemorrhoids.
  4. People who strain during bowel movements and sitting for long periods of time, especially on a toilet are more susceptible to piles.
