Piles, also known as hemorrhoids, are swollen and inflamed veins in the rectum or anus. While piles can affect individuals of any age, they are more common in adults over the age of 50.
It is not very common for a 20-year-old to develop piles unless there are certain underlying medical conditions or risk factors present. Some potential risk factors for developing piles at a younger age may include chronic constipation or diarrhea, pregnancy, obesity, a family history of piles, or a sedentary lifestyle.
If you are experiencing symptoms of piles, such as pain, itching, bleeding, or a lump near the anus, it is recommended that you speak with your healthcare provider for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment.
