Hemorrhoids are swollen veins in the anal and rectal area that can cause discomfort, itching, and bleeding.
External hemorrhoids can appear as small lumps or bumps around the anus. These are often bluish in color, and they may be tender or painful to the touch.
Internal hemorrhoids may not be visible, but they can cause bleeding during bowel movements. In some cases, they may protrude through the anus and appear as a small, grape-like lump.
If you suspect that you have hemorrhoids, it is important to see a doctor for a proper diagnosis and treatment. Other conditions, such as anal fissures or colorectal cancer, can have similar symptoms and should be ruled out.
