Men & haemorrhoids

So you think you might have haemorrhoids?

Haemorrhoids are enlarged veins situated in or around the back passage (anus) caused by increased pressure in the abdomen.

Haemorrhoids can be either external or internal - if they occur close to the anal opening they can protrude to form external haemorrhoids. If they occur higher up, so they are hidden from view, they are known as internal haemorrhoids.
