Symptoms of Haemorrhoids

Quite a few people don’t get any symptoms at all from their haemorrhoids. The most frequent symptoms caused by haemorrhoids are:

  • Bleeding during bowel movements
  • Protrusion during bowel movements
  • Itching in the anal area
  • Pain
  • Sensitive lump(s) around the anus

Prolapsing haemorrhoids is the term used to describe the protrusion of the  haemorrhoid which happens on bowel opening. Sometimes the haemorrhoid which prolapses can get stuck out and not go back. If this happens they can become very swollen and painful.
