We all have clusters of tissues massed together to form cushions in the anal canal. These cushions are full of blood vessels and are called hemorrhoids. When you have piles these hemorrhoids get enlarged by swelling and become sore and painful. Small hemorrhoids do not cause any problem or symptoms and go unnoticed but if the blood vessels in them swell they tend to protrude out of the rectum.
The thin delicate membrane covering the hemorrhoids gets bruised and damaged causing bleeding. Sometimes a clot can also form in the blood vessels due to a lot of straining when passing stool, causing hardening of the cushion. Piles can occur inside the opening of the anal area which is more common or they can occur outside, round the edge of the anus. Constipation is one of the main reasons for piles.
