Piles can be referred to as a condition which might result in bleeding in the anal region when there is an abnormal enlargement of the rectal veins. The bleeding occurs when there is a swelling of the rectal veins due to a sudden increase of pressure in the area and it becomes bruised or ruptured due to forceful passage of stool. Also known as haemorrhoids, the veins may grow in the exterior part as well as the interior part of the anus as well. This may lead to severe pain alongside bleeding and result in problems with daily life and activities.
