Internal Hemorrhoids and External Hemorrhoids
The hemorrhoids are relatively unknown to the public. Two fundamental errors are thus frequently committed by a large part of the population.

Internal Hemorrhoids and External Hemorrhoids
Internal Hemorrhoids and External Hemorrhoids

The first error is at the level of the language. Indeed, the majority of people do not know that hemorrhoids are veins located at the anus of the human being and that these are not a problem as such; They are thus present in an entirely reasonable way to the whole population. The term “hemorrhoids” therefore literally refers to these veins and not to a disorder. To designate an abnormal dilation of these veins, it would be better to speak of a hemorrhoidal crisis.

The second common mistake is to believe that there is only one type of hemorrhoids, those that manifest in the form of protuberances that emerge from the anus. This is false. Indeed, this kind of hemorrhoids refers to the external hemorrhoids. There is also a second type of hemorrhoids: the internal hemorrhoids. Doctors, therefore, talk about two distinct kinds of hemorrhoids, although both can appear at the same time and generate similar symptoms. It is, therefore, necessary to make a thorough diagnosis to distinguish between these two kinds of hemorrhoids.

External Hemorrhoids

The external hemorrhoids are located around the outer part of the anus, at the level of the soft tissues that surround it. When the veins around the anus are filled with blood permanently, the prominences appear.

The most common haemorrhoidal disorder is external hemorrhoid. They are also easier to diagnose than internal ones, and are more easily treatable; There are various solutions to relieve hemorrhoids.


The most common causes of this type of hemorrhoidal disorder are constipation, lack of exercise, pregnancy, anal sex or genetic factors.


Symptoms of this type of hemorrhoids are the appearance of drops of blood on toilet paper after being stooled, as well as pain when sitting or just after being a stool.

Internal Hemorrhoids

Internal hemorrhoids refer to abnormal and permanent dilation of the veins within the anus and the lower part of the rectum.


The reasons for these hemorrhoids are relatively similar to those of external hemorrhoid crises. However, in this particular case, they are mainly because the veins have been scraped or rubbed by toilet tissue or hard stools which are frequent in the event of constipation.


Different symptoms characterize this disorder. It is, therefore, common for blood to appear on toilet paper but also in the stool. Thus, presenting blood in the stool is a unique feature of internal hemorrhoid. This type of disorder is also often manifested by pain in the anal region which is described as a palpitation.
