Piles or hemorrhoids are normal blood vessels of the rectum and anus. They are considered as an abnormal finding (or a problem) only when they swell, inflame or bleed leading to anal discomfort, pain and itching. In fact, they are the most common cause of rectal and anal complaints as we age. It’s been observed that almost 50% of people experience piles by the age of 50. So, once considered an age-related disorder, the recent COVID-19 pandemic has caused a 3 fold rise in the number of piles, fissure and fistula cases among individuals between 15-50 years of age. This can majorly be attributed to the Work from Home and Study from Home culture during the lockdowns. As we all are just staying inside, the lifestyle has become sedentary with no or little physical activity. Also, the risk of getting infected through vegetables and fruits have led to their decreased consumption and hence, less fiber. The low fiber diet causes constipation and straining during defecation.Along with these, overconsumption of ayurvedic kadhas and self-medication also lead to an increase in various gastric problems and eventually, ano-rectal conditions.

All these put together have raised the burden on proctologists around the world. That’s why proctologists are nowadays focusing more on preventive measures by recommending diet and lifestyle changes and regular screening for everyone having any ano-rectal issue. It must not be considered an “old person’s disease” and everyone should visit piles hospital in Delhi for Prevention & Screening.

Anyhow, pandemic or no pandemic, all the above mentioned factors in general can also cause normal hemorrhoids to swell due to increased pressure in the small vessels leading to symptoms like:

  • Pain around anus while defecating and sitting
  • Blood in stool
  • Extreme anal itching
  • Mucus discharge through anus
  • Swelling and feeling of an uncomfortablehard and painful lump around the anus

Can these symptoms be managed at home?

Many patients tend to under estimate the need of a proctologist and try to self-treat themselves with home remedies like warm sitz bath, high fiber diet, or over-the-counter (OTC) use of suppositories, gels or pain relievers, such as ibuprofen, acetaminophen, or aspirin. These may give relief to only those patients who have mild hemorrhoids while moderate or severe cases need best proctologist in India for expert medical attention.

As far as options of piles treatment in Delhi are considered, Grade 2 and 3 hemorrhoids may require special techniques like laser, RFA, harmonic etc. to shrink the hemorrhoid. Sometimes surgical procedures like Hemorrhoidectomy or Hemorrhoid stapling are required to remove large hemorrhoids.
