Seven myths about hemorrhoids

Hemorrhoids are a common condition in both men and women which cause pain, irritating, itching, and sometimes bleeding. And even though it affects half the population worldwide to be made 50 years yet there are many misconceptions about the condition.There are many who believe that daily habits, such as consumption of spicy food, seat on cold sidewalks, or having anal sex cause hemorrhoids. The development of hemorrhoids but it is more complicated and it’s good for everyone to know the truth.”The knowledge can protect us, but to free us from the notions that restrict us to enjoy what we really want,” notes the surgeon general Dr. Anastasios Ξιάρχος – Director of the surgical clinic of the Athens Medical Group – Medical center of Peristeri and President of the Scientific society of Anorectal Surgery, which helps us to find out the myths prevailing for hemorrhoids.1st Myth: The hemorrhoids can lead to cancer of the colon εντέρουΟι hemorrhoids while the majority of them are harmless, it can develop into a serious problem, but this is not the cancer. These are two completely different diseases: hemorrhoids are enlarged veins, whereas cancer is caused by abnormal division and mutation of cells. This does not mean, however, that the hemorrhoids need to be treated lightly, so why do some cancer patients are prone to hemorrhoids (due to the pressure that can be exercised by the tumor), and because some of the symptoms of hemorrhoids are common with those of cancer of the colon. So you should always seek medical advice in order to rule out more serious conditions.2nd Myth: spicy foods cause αιμορροΐδεςΤο a lot of pepper, oriental dishes which contain a lot of spices, and, more generally, spicy foods can cause problems in the digestive system, because it disrupts the balance of the stomach. Directly, can not cause hemorrhoids, because it does not affect the veins in the rectal area. What can be blamed is the challenge of irritation and itching in the rectal area and not infrequently constipation, which is the main cause of hemorrhoids.3rd Myth: The consumption of dietary fiber blocks the appearance αιμορροΐδωνΑν and the consumption of dietary fiber is an important factor in the prevention of αιμορροϊδοπάθειας, is neither the sole nor enough. Fruits and vegetables so you don’t make us απρόσβλητους, just reduce the chances of developing hemorrhoids, or more properly delay the progression of the disease.Important role in the creation and evolution of hemorrhoids, play a factors such as sedentary lifestyle and prolonged stay in the toilet bowl. The best for those who are worried about developing hemorrhoids is to be proactive: to drink at least 8 glasses of water daily, follow a diet rich in fiber (and when it is not feasible to take fiber supplements) and exercise daily.4th Myth: hemorrhoids can be caused by the anal σεξΤο anal sex is not the main cause of hemorrhoids. Despite the fact that anal intercourse can be aggravated, there is no study that provides sufficient evidence that it causes hemorrhoids, when followed certain rules of proper practice.5th Myth : The seat on a cold sidewalk can cause αιμορροΐδεςΑυτός the myth is funny, but it prevails mainly in people of eastern origin. The sitting posture for a long period of time can cause hemorrhoids due to the pressure exerted on the rectum, but in any case is not a cause of occurrence of the rest on the sidewalk.6th Myth: hemorrhoids are a condition of ηλικιωμένωνΕδώ there is a grain of truth: older people are more likely to suffer from them, due to the weakening of the walls of the rectum with age. But that doesn’t mean that the younger ones are excluded, as well as any person of any age can show hemorrhoids. Apart from aging, other risk factors include pregnancy and chronic constipation.7th Myth: hemorrhoids are permanent and not θεραπεύονταιΟι hemorrhoids is a condition that is characterized by relapses and as with most health problems, is not necessarily permanent, and in any case are treated. They are engorged veins that may change, especially when the cause thereof is temporary, such as.x. childbirth. There are many ways to their treatment, made either in house, either at the level of the out-patient clinic, or in operating rooms.”All of the treatments are relatively simple and painless. With modern surgical techniques the annoying problem of hemorrhoids can not find a definitive solution, in minimum time. Permanent results depend on the proper functioning of the intestine, which means perseverance in a fibre-rich diet, sufficient hydration and exercise, advises Dr. Anastasios Ξιάρχος.
