Medical professionals classify hemorrhoids into one of four grades.
- Grade 1: These internal hemorrhoids occasionally bleed, but cause no pain and do not extend outside of the rectum.
- Grade 2: At this level, hemorrhoids may prolapse, or extend out of the anus, during activities that involve physical strain. That said, Grade 2 hemorrhoids usually return to their original positions without outside assistance.
- Grade 3: Level 3 hemorrhoids usually bleed and cause pain. They may prolapse when put under strain and may need to be manually re-inserted into the body.
- Grade 4: 4th level hemorrhoids cause pain, bleeding, discharge, and possible tissue damage. The most serious of the group, these often require major medical interventions.
