They are classified into external and internal, with regard to their position in relation with the dentate line. External piles are painful and may produce discomforts like itching, burning sensation, bleeding etc. constipation which causes repeated strain during defecation in turn increases the pressure in the veins, thereby causes the prolapse of pile mass.
