A thrombosed hemorrhoid is a medical condition which is characterized by the formation of blood clots in the anal blood vessels which causes inflammation, swelling and severe pain to the anus of the victim.
Blood clots usually occur as a result of the damage to the wall of the blood vessels and changes in the blood composition. Hemorrhoids can occur in the internal or external part of the body and more often than not, they are painful and unsightly.
Hemorrhoids can be aggravated by other conditions such as pregnancy and constipation. Surgeries are now available but many victims prefer home remedies for hemorrhoids because they are non-invasive and more convenient.
