First-degree internal haemorrhoids: three bulges form above the dentate line. Bright bleeding is common.

Stage 3

Third-degree internal haemorrhoids: the pile continues to enlarge and slide downwards, requiring manual replacement to alleviate discomfort. Bleeding is also a feature.

Stage 4

Fourth-degree internal haemorrhoids: prolapse has occurred and replacement of the prolapsed pile into the anal canal is impossible.
