Sometimes the veins present in the skin surrounding the anus may get inflamed and swollen and are known as external hemorrhoids.
The anorectal canal is supplied by rich vascular supply. Besides normal blood supply, there are six cushion of venous tissue called Hemorrhoid cushion. Three of these cushions are arranged within the anal canal (internal) and three lie outside (external).
