Hemorrhoids are swollen veins located around the anus or in the lower rectum. Based on the locations, the most common types are as following:
  • Internal hemorrhoids develop within the anus or rectum.
  • External hemorrhoids develop outside of the anus. They are the most common and most troublesome.
  • Mixed hemorrhoids incorporate both internal and external components.
Though the condition can be very painful, they won't cause death. Also, they often go away on their own without treatment. Even the serious ones are treatable. But you need to receive immediate treatment if you have large amounts of rectal bleeding, lightheadedness and faintness.   Keywords: hemorrhoids pictures, do hemorrhoids look like, does hemorrhoid look like, hemorrhoid images, hemorrhoid pictures images, hemorrhoid pictures photo, hemorrhoid pictures, pictures hemorrhoids, pictures images hemorrhoids

Hemorrhoids can be of two types – internal hemorrhoids and external hemorrhoids.

How hemorrhoids may appear depends on the type of hemorrhoid. What a hemorrhoid look like also depends on its stage.

Hemorrhoids are inflamed and swollen blood vessels that develop in and around the anus. These blood vessels can stretch when a pressure is applied on and around them.

Many people who have hemorrhoids do not experience symptoms. The most common symptom of internal hemorrhoids is red blood in the stool or blood on the toilet paper after wiping.

External hemorrhoids are easy to self-diagnose because they can be seen and felt by hand easily. These are generally quite painful. You may experience pain in the surrounding areas too. You will notice a swollen or a hard lump around the anus. Excessive straining, rubbing or cleaning around the anus may cause irritation and bleeding or itching.
