hemmorhoids (search works best if you spell the word correctly, but nonetheless, there hasn't been much discussion on hemmorhoids anyway) are inflamed blood vessels in your rectum. They get sore, they swell, they itch, and sometimes if you struggle hard enough to poop, the vesels pop and you wind upwith a bloody mess.
They are usually caused by repeated irritation of the anus, such as hard stools and excessive constipation. They can be treated surgically in severe cases, or you can get Preparation H. Prevention is easy. Drink water, eat more fiber.
