While most patients come with self-diagnosis of suffering from piles/hemorrhoids, I reassure them that it's a normal part of every human being and we are all born with them. Another myth is pain from piles. Piles are painless and cause bleeding, itching and sometimes jelly-like secretions, but they very rarely cause pain.
Do we need Piles?
Yes. Contrary to belief,hemorrhoids (piles) are necessary for everyone. They have a role in continence (once ability to control/postpone defecation).
