symptoms of Piles

These hemorrhoids or the piles are nothing but the blood vessels which are hanging down at the anal part that gives bleeding or pain or itching. They may happen in children or adult people or elderly people.

They have a complaint of constipation and they have a type A personality where they may have the bleeding with the fisher also. So we have to take care about the bleeding at anal canal because that may be alarming to the patient and they comes to the surgeons.

Investigation of Piles

When a patient comes with the history of bleeding or itching or the pain, they are examined with the proper tools. We come to a conclusion that the patient may be suffering with hemorrhoids or piles or fistulas or the fishers. When we confirm the disease, we ask the patient to go for investigations like blood or urine examinations or fitness for surgery like cardiac, ECG and X-rays and other things. If the Fistula is a problem then we ask the patients to go for a fistula MRI fistulogram which is a special investigation. Fistula is nothing but a communication between the anal verge to the rectum. If the patient is having discharging puss through a small tract it is called as fistula. So they come with all these problems and we examine the patient, investigate the patient and as well we advise the treatment options.
