Lesson no. 26 Piles (Bawaseer): -


Piles, also known as haemorrhoids, are swollen veins & muscle around your anus or in your anal canal. The anal canal is a short, muscular tube with blood vessels that connects your rectum (back passage) with your anus. Piles can develop when this tissue becomes swollen, possibly as a result of straining while passing the toilet. Sometimes, piles can be painful & bleed if the rectal veins get ruptured or become damaged.
