Hemorrhoids are swollen veins in the rectum or anus that can cause discomfort, pain, and bleeding. Hemorrhoids can be caused by straining during bowel movements, sitting for long periods of time, or pregnancy. 

When is it necessary to see a doctor?

If you have symptoms such as rectal bleeding, itching, or pain, it's important to see a doctor to determine if you have hemorrhoids and receive appropriate treatment to prevent further complications. Treatment for hemorrhoids may involve lifestyle modifications such as increasing fiber intake and staying hydrated, as well as over-the-counter medications to reduce inflammation and pain.
