Hemorrhoids; Overview, Treatment, and Prevention

Hemorrhoids, commonly known as piles, are cushions of vascular tissue found within the anal canal.  Approximately 50% of adults, over the age of 50 have symptomatic “hemorrhoidal disease”.  Although it is more common in adults, it is still possible to experience hemorrhoidal disease at a younger age.
