What are Haemorrhoids?
Many people in Singapore develop and suffer from piles or haemorrhoids. Haemorrhoids are commonly known as piles. Piles affect one in three people in Singapore. Piles are abnormally engorged and swollen blood vessels in the anus and lower rectum, causing discomfort, itchiness or pain. They can swell up with blood clots (thrombosed piles) causing severe pain and necessitating haemorrhoids treatment. The more dangerous complication of piles is bleeding – where the blood vessels rupture or move out of place.
Why is Haemorrhoids Treatment in Singapore Necessary?
Bleeding, pain and itch may affect a person’s lifestyle. Piles surgery to remove excessive tissue causing the bleeding and protrusion is called hemorrhoidectomy. Many people are too embarrassed to see the doctor until the pain and discomfort becomes unbearable, or when there is bleeding. This leads to serious implications on rectal health and it can become dangerous for a person’s health. These conditions can be cured at an early stage before it worsens. Thus, it is critical for patients to undergo piles removal surgery at their local clinic in Singapore at the early stages of development to prevent further rectal issues.
