Types of Piles / Hemorrhoids

According to Medilexicon's medical dictionary, Hemorrhoids are classified below :

Hemorrhoids are "A varicose condition of the external hemorrhoidal veins causing painful swellings at the anus."

Internal Hemorrhoids are "Dilated veins beneath the mucous membrane within the sphincter."

They are classified into four grades:

  • Grade 1 - there are small inflammations, usually inside the lining of the anus. They are not visible.
  • Grade 2 - larger than Grade 1 hemorrhoids, and also inside the anus. When passing a stool they may get pushed    out, but soon return.
  • Grade 3 - often called 'prolapsed hemorrhoids'; these appear outside the anus. The patient may feel them hanging    out. They can be pushed back in if the patient presses with his/her finger.
  • Grade 4 - these cannot be pushed back in and need to be treated by a doctor. They are large and stay outside    the anus all the time.

  • External Hemorrhoids are "dilated veins forming tumors at the outer side of the external sphincter."

    These are also called perianal hematoma. These are small lumps that are located on the outside edge of the anus. They are extremely itchy and can be painful if a blood clot forms inside (thrombosed external hemorrhoid). Thrombosed external hemorrhoid requires medical treatment straight away.
