Hemroids (or hemorrhoids) are also known as piles. Although they can be extremely unpleasant and painful for many people,
they can be easily treated and often prevented. As hemorrhoids generally get worse as time goes by, health care professionals say
they should be treated as soon as they appear.
At least four-fifths of adults in Europe and North America will experience hemorrhoids at some point in their lives. Doctors say a large number of people who go and have a checkup are found to have hemorrhoids.
