Suffering from the problems of hemorrhoids? What are your options for treatment? And how bad must the condition be before surgery is needed? Hemorrhoids have been plaguing the human race for thousands of years, and might possibly have influenced world history.
It is a well known fact that Napoleon Bonaparte suffered from hemorrhoids during the battle at Waterloo.

Hemorrhoids fall into two general categories, internal and external.
Internal Hemorrhoids - located inside the anal cavity and are covered by anal mucosa.
External Hemorrhoids - located in the back part of the anal canal which are covered by anoderm and skin.
Believe it or not we still do not know what the exact cause of hemorrhoids are.
We do know what contributes to the hemorrhoid problems and this includes the following:
  • excessive straining upon having a bowel movement (Constipation).
  • Sitting for long periods of time.
  • Child Birth.
  • Anal Sex.
