Piles are inflamed masses and clusters of tissue in the anal canal. These clumps also known as hemorrhoids are full of blood vessels, elastic fiber, muscle and support tissue. When these clumps become inflamed and swollen they cause excessive pain. Piles can be of varying of sizes and they can form within the anal canal or outside the anus. A hard lump occurs around the anus which can cause itching around the anus area and pain while defecating.

Piles generally occur in middle aged people and they can be caused by anal intercourse, chronic diarrhea and constipation, obesity, lifting heavy weights regularly and straining when passing a stool.
