A hemorrhoid is a dilated rectal vein. As you can imagine, you have blood vessels in every part of your body, but a hemorrhoid is located primarily in the anorectal region. And most of the Times you're not aware of veins in that area until they become inflamed or enlarged, and then they can cause pain, discomfort, and in some cases, bleeding.
