What are piles?

In brief: Haemorrhoids

Piles, or haemorrhoids, are areas in the anal canal where the tissue has become swollen.
They are very common at any age.

Piles are round swellings on the inside of the anal canal - the short, muscular tube that connects your rectum (back passage) with your anus - in areas known as the anal cushions.

Many people with piles don´t consult a doctor so its difficult to know exactly how many people in the Hong Kong get them.
