Hemorrhoids: Piles is another name for hemorrhoids. Hemorrhoids are dilated blood vessels around the rectum. Avoiding constipation by eating a diet that is high in fiber and drinking plenty of water can keep the hemorrhoids from worsening. If they are severe you may need to see a surgeon to have them removed.

In many cases, piles are small and symptoms settle down without treatment. If required, treatment is usually effective.
