What Are Hemorrhoids?

Hemorrhoids are dilated blood vessels involving the lower rectum. We all have hemorrhoids. Some have more blood vessel dilation than others leading to more frequent and severe symptoms. Hemorrhoids are a chronic disease. Consequently, once you develop hemorrhoids they don’t go away.  Since symptoms may worsen over time, early treatment is often recommended to prevent recurrent flare-ups and disease progression.
