What is piles and I have in anus itching problem and burn also so its piles or any other problem.

PGDMLS, PGDHHM, LLB, PhD Surgery, MS - General Surgery
General Surgeon, Gurgaon
Piles is localized engorgment of blood vessels in the anal area. Initially it is limited to inside the anal canal and gradually they tend to pout outside. They may or may not cause bleeding. They may just cause irritation or some anal discharge. Piles tend to get aggravated by chronic constipation. Yes, what you perceive as piles may not be piles because there is an overlap of symptoms with certain other conditions like fissure, fistula, polyp and occasionally more serious problems like anorectal cancer. Occasionally in patients of cirrhosis liver you may get secondary piles as a consequence of portal hypertension. That would require a different kind of management. It is important for you to know that anal fissure & piles improves with general measures but may require surgery. The general measures I would suggest are 1. Take lot of vegetables & fruits in your diet 2. Avoid chillies & spices 3. Take lot of fluids 4. Avoid constipation 5 periodically do anal exercises (alternately contracting & relaxing the buttocks, anal area & upper thighs) 6. Take sitz bath 3-4 times a day. This means sitting in a tub of warm water & doing anal exercises 7. Atleast once get it examined by a general surgeon.

Dermatologist,
Mouth ulcer (apthus ulcer) is mainly due to bad chemicals which are not cleared through our digestive system. By stool due to constipation, or other digestive problem, due to vitamins deficiency also. Or maybe by some infection, cancer also causes mouth ulcers. If you want advice please consult.

Keep your blood sugar controlled. Raise your bed about 4" from headend side. Get your gastroendoscopy/USG done. Tab Pantium-l 1 tab empty stomach.

Dear lybrate user with the limited amount of information provided it appears that you are having gastritis. The first and foremost treatment of which is life style modification like regular exercise, diet modification as advised and liberal fluid intake. Try having small frequent meals, avoid tea/coffee/carbonated drinks, avoid chilli, stop smoking and consuming alcohol if you do. Hope this solves your query. Try with these life style measures first. If any concern then feel free to contact we will then discuss and start you on medication if needed as every one has a different requirement of medicine.

Dull pain on right side lower abdomen and on waist line ultra sound report ok Kin report ok Liver function kidney function test ok ct scan whole abdomen ok What it can be Do I have to go for colonoscopy and endoscopy.

MBBS
General Physician,
Most of the investigation are normal in that case this pain may be due to fatty liver which may be caused by the prolonged drinking of alcohol this is alcoholic fatty liver. Fatty liver to some extent is normal for those who has the habit of drinking regularly. I don't know the lifestyle you lead you might have ton change the lifestyle. And stop drinking or have in moderation quite low side. Have plenty of leafy vegetables, cereals etc bal was need food and lot of water by mouth. Go for morning walk followed by free hand exercises. It will improve.
