They are of 2 types

  • Internal – The ones above dentate line in the anus
  • External – the ones Which are Outside the dentate line

Internal hemorrhoids - First Degree which cause painless bleeding
Second Degree Protrude at the time of defecation but reduce spontaneously And patient complains of mass per rectum
Third Degree These have to be reduced manually or can be irreducible( 4th degree), Pt complains of discomfort itching, pain and watery discharge from piles.

Treatment – Sclerotherapy or banding for 1st degree hemorrhoids
