What are the Grades of Piles or Hemorrhoids?

  • Grade I- Small inflammations inside the anal lining which are not visible to the eyes.
  • Grade II- Bigger than grade I, they also remain inside the anus but may come out during a bowel movement.
  • Grade III- Also known as prolapsed piles as the veins hang out of the anus. These can be re-inserted manually.
  • Grade IV- These are large inflammations that remain hanging out of the anus and require surgery as treatment.
