When the blood vessels in the anal canal swell it is called internal piles and when the blood vessels near the end of the anus swell it is called external piles. External piles make the mucus membrane come out. Secretion of blood and severe pain is associated with external piles.


A small tear or split near in the lining of the lower anal area is called as Fissures. Longstanding constipation and increased pressure during secretion may lead to fissures. Extended time in passing stool, carrying and diarrhea can cause fissures.

An anal fistula is a small channel that can develop between the end of the bowel and the skin near the anus. When fistula forms one exercises pain, swelling and pus formation.
