Almost everyone is bothered at some time or another by hemorrhoids. Reports suggest that 50 percent of the U.S. population - both men and women - have hemorrhoids by age 50.
The term refers to a condition that occurs when veins around the anus (external hemorrhoids) or just inside the anus (internal hemorrhoids) become distended and inflamed. They can cause a number of
symptoms - usually just irritating, not dangerous, and treatable at home - but sometimes they can become infected or bleed heavily, prompting urgent intervention and even surgery.
