Hemorrhoid Embolization 

Hemorrhoids are veins found around the anus that can become abnormally

enlarged due to chronic constipation or straining (such as childbirth or weightlifting).

When these veins grow, they can cause symptoms such as bleeding, pain,

or itchiness and can be associated with a change in bowel habits.
