Hemorrhoids are varicose veins of the rectal area. They may appear as an irritation, as inflammation or may be infected. Hemorrhoids can be internal or hang like grapes on the outside. They may or may not be painful. It is a congestion of the portal vein to the liver. Hemorrhoids are caused by too much sitting, constipation, or liver problem.
