Not always people suffering from hemorrhoids have the courage to admit that they suffer from such a disease. It seems to them that in the public mind there is a negative image about it.
However, in this pathology there is nothing indecent, hemorrhoids are similar to veins in varicose veins, only it is located in a very sensitive area. In this condition, the veins of the rectum are stretched, swollen, inflamed. This happens for several reasons:
- Constant constipation.
- Inflammatory diseases, tumors of the pelvic organs and rectum.
- Sitting work.
- Hypodynamia, or lack of mobility.
- Heavy physical work.
- Abuse of laxatives.
These causes cause stagnant venous blood in the cavernous bodies of the rectum. Their walls expand, traumatize, they are ruptured and eroded. Hemorrhoids can be both inside the anus and outside it. External hemorrhoids( or external thrombosis) cause great suffering. It manifests itself with pain during defecation, burning and itching in the anus, with the loss of hemorrhoids.
Exacerbation of the disease occurs during pregnancy, as the growing uterus dramatically increases the load on the venous apparatus, increased pressure damages the veins. And with acute, and with a chronic phase of discharge with hemorrhoids can have a different character.
Mucous discharge - when they are pathology
In the healthy intestine, a small amount of mucosal substance is almost always produced, which supports the dynamics of the intestine. It performs many functions, one of which - in the case of inflammatory processes, to prevent clumping of the intestinal tissues, since the mucosa in such cases changes its structure.
With hemorrhoids secretion of mucus secretions increases, it is released from the rectum, causing great discomfort. The area of the anus becomes irritated, the skin and mucous are macerated due to constant moisture, erosions appear on them, and permanent itching causes enormous discomfort.
Almost never increased mucus secretion is not the only sign of hemorrhoids. If it is accompanied by such symptoms as:
- abdominal pain,
- pruritus and burning sensation in the rectum,
- foreign body sensation,
- obstruction during bowel evacuation,
- large amount of mucus secreted during defecation,
should consult a coloproctologist to clarify the diagnosis. Unfortunately, similar symptoms can be and at very serious pathologies of bodies of a small basin as mucosal discharge is a protective reaction of an organism to inflammatory processes in GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT.
If hemorrhoids are not treated, mucus will start to separate regardless of the act of defecation due to relaxation of the anal sphincter, and the inflammation process will progress. Mucous discharge can acquire a different color or consistency. For example, they can become turbid, or they may have an impurity of blood.
Blood from the anus - differentiate the causes of
In case of injury to the dilated veins, hemorrhoids that go beyond the rectum, bleeding often occurs. Most often, blood is released during a visit to the toilet, it may also occur during hygiene procedures.
Sometimes it is rather scarce, only a few drops of blood released during defecation, and sometimes it is a small trickle of blood at the end of the bowel movement.
The color of bloody discharge is scarlet or dark red, depending on the intensity of bleeding. Even a few drops of blood on the toilet paper should alert and serve as a reason for a thorough examination.
If this symptom is accompanied by discomfort in the digestive tract, as well as an unusual form of excrement, which become atypically thin - a clinical picture of colon cancer appears.
For hemorrhoids, blood suppositories can be used with special suppositories for anesthetizing and stopping bleeding based on:
- Belladonna extract
- Cocoa butter
- Adrenaline solution
If bleeding is accompanied by painful pain, a thrombus can be removed that the doctor can remove during surgery.
If hemorrhoids are accompanied by purulent secretions of
Purulent discharge in hemorrhoids is a manifestation of a complicated process. Most often, the cause is thrombosis of the hemorrhoidal node, or inflammation of the tissue of tissues located around the anus - paraproctitis.
In this case, very severe pain, significant temperature increase, swelling and redness of the tissues join the purulent discharge. It is necessary to distinguish these symptoms from the manifestation of other diseases:
- Breakthrough of the pararectal abscess.
- Neoplasms of various etiologies, including malignant ones.
- Ulcerative colitis.
- Pararectal fistulas.
- Complications after hemorrhoid surgery due to falling into the surgical wound from the stool of pathogenic microbes.
With purulent discharge during hemorrhoids, therapeutic measures are aimed at eliminating the cause of the disease, restoring immunity, preventing relapses. In case of significant complications, surgical intervention, drainage of the affected area, antibacterial agents are used.
