Not true at all. Let's talk more about piles disease.
Piles disease in a nutshell
The most common causes of piles are being constipated and straining hard during a bowel movement. There does tend to be a genetic element to it. So, you may have a higher chance of developing piles if a parent has it. Also, if you're pregnant, there is a 50/50 chance you will get them.

Hemorrhoidal veins are present in the anal canal. Hemorrhoidsoccur when these veins become swollen and the tissue around them become inflamed. A swollen vein near the opening of the anal canal is called external hemorrhoid and a swollen vein within the rectum is called internal hemorrhoid.
Internal hemorrhoids are defined on how severe they are. First-degree internal hemorrhoids always remain inside the rectum. Second-degree internal hemorrhoids are those that will come outside the rectum during a bowel movement and then return to the inside of the rectum on their own. Third-degree internal hemorrhoids extend outside the rectum during a bowel movement and then must be pushed back inside. Fourth-degree internal hemorrhoids always remain outside the rectum and cannot be pushed back in.
Depending on the severity of piles, treatments are prescribed. Let’s look at the treatment options present out there.
Conventional treatment of piles
Treatment of piles includes using topical creams or suppositories that you can buy from the pharmacies. Needless to say, the medications may come with side-effects such as skin rash, severe irritation, anxiety, severe headaches, blurred vision, and many more.
Your doctor may suggest a hemorrhoidectomy to remove your hemorrhoids if you do not respond to the above methods positively. A hemorrhoidectomy, however, is one of the most painful procedures in the world and also quite expensive.
