5. How does the hemorrhoidal illness express itself?
Depending on size and indications, the hemorrhoidal illness can be separated
into four stages.
The hemorrhoid is neither visible nor can be felt by examination. The main
symptom is the light red blood in the stool. Pain does not exists.
Occasionally, it will itch and will feel like the existence of a foreign
object in the final intestine.
The hemorrhoidal tissue can be pushed out during defecation while pushing.
However, they slide back inside immediately after. In addition to visible
bleeding, itching, burning sensation, leaking as well as pain is present
with the defecation.
tissue does not retract by itself but can manually be pushed back in. The
bleeding becomes less since the mucous membrane tissue which surrounds the
hemorrhoids begin to thicken and harden and is therefore less sensitive in
to injuries. Pain, itching and leaking increase which can lead to eczemas at
the surrounding anal skin. Occlusion in the hemorrhoidal veins can occur,
which leads to very painful thrombosis.
This stage is called fixed anal prolaps. The hemorrhoids are now constantly
outside and cannot manually be pushed back in any more. The anal mucosa is
pushed inside out and leaks constantly. This causes irritation of the skin
and can lead to unpleasant eczemas and infections. Bleedings are rare but
involuntary defecations may occur. In time, ulcers may form, choked tissue
or necrosis may occur due to pinched blood vessels which are extremely
diseases - still a topic with taboo |
