Types of Haemorrhoids (Piles)ย 

Majority of the people are confused with the types of haemorrhoids (also known as piles) we have: internal, external, Grade 1, Grade 2, Grade 3 and Grade 4.
The easiest way to differentiate haemorrhoids is to divide them into internal or external haemorrhoids. ๐ˆ๐ง๐ญ๐ž๐ซ๐ง๐š๐ฅ ๐ก๐š๐ž๐ฆ๐จ๐ซ๐ซ๐ก๐จ๐ข๐๐ฌ are formed above the dentate line (the line separating rectum and anal canal); those formed below the dentate line is known as ๐ž๐ฑ๐ญ๐ž๐ซ๐ง๐š๐ฅ ๐ก๐š๐ž๐ฆ๐จ๐ซ๐ซ๐ก๐จ๐ข๐๐ฌ. Haemorrhoids that can be seen externally does not necessarily is external haemorrhoids as each individual has different position of the dentate line.
Generally, haemorrhoids are further divided into 4 grades depends on its severity. Basically, we are unable to see ๐†๐ซ๐š๐๐ž ๐Ÿ ๐ก๐š๐ž๐ฆ๐จ๐ซ๐ซ๐ก๐จ๐ก๐ข๐๐ฌ, it does not come out from the anus. Occasionally, we might notice there is blood on the toilet paper or toilet bowl, and the bleeding stops after bowel movement.

The haemorrhoids will protrude out during bowel movements, but require manual pushing (using fingers) the haemorrhoids back into the anal canal.

Sometimes, you may come across of the term โ€œ๐œ๐จ๐ฆ๐›๐ข๐ง๐ž๐ ๐ข๐ง๐ญ๐ž๐ซ๐ง๐š๐ฅ ๐š๐ง๐ ๐ž๐ฑ๐ญ๐ž๐ซ๐ง๐š๐ฅ ๐ก๐š๐ž๐ฆ๐จ๐ซ๐ซ๐ก๐จ๐ข๐๐ฌโ€ this condition is quite common, it is when the haemorrhoids growth are a mixture of both internal and external type, and prolapsed out from the anal canal like Grade 3.
