Piles are very embarrassing conditions for a patient.
It can present in 3 basic forms
1. Pain-- This is due to fissure or a cut in the lining of anal canal. It can also be due to prolapsing of piles from anal canal.
2. Bleeding-- This is due to bleeding from enlarged piles or due to fissure.
3. Prolapse-- This presents as something like small grape like structure coming out from anal canal.It can also be due to purely skin swelling in which it is called sentinel pile which is a indicator of previous fissure.
Conventional surgery The surgical treatment available is very painful procedure which takes 30 to 45 mins depending on the severity of piles. It leads to narrowing of anal canal in nearly all cases which in turn leads to recurrence. Dietary restrictions are many after surgery
