The prevalence of hemorrhoids

, : The prevalence of hemorrhoids. Diseases of the Colon & Rectum 26(7): 435-439

The clinical records of 835 patients were reviewed. A total of 594 had symptoms of hemorrhoids (symptomatic group) and 241 had no symptoms (asymptomatic group). Of the entire group, 88% had hemorrhoids, among the symptomatic group, 88%, and among the asymptomatic group, 82%. It was felt that if the prevalence rate of hemorrhoids in the symptomatic and asymptomatic groups is similar or close to similar in every age it is likely that a certain number of people will have hemorrhoids in every age group irrespective of the presence or absence of symptoms. If the prevalence rate is high, it would seem to support the theory that hemorrhoids are normal parts of the human body, not a disease but a sign of aging. Although the difference in the prevalence rate overall in the symptomatic and asymptomatic groups, 88 vs. 82%, was mathematically significant, this was due to the large sample size, which was small enough to be without clinical importance. No significant differences in the prevalence rate between symptomatic and asymptomatic patients within age groups were found.
