Hemorrhoids are swollen veins around the anus. Swelling can be caused by straining to move your bowels, sitting too long on the toilet, or other causes, like pregnancy, obesity, or liver disease.
Diverticulitis is when pockets form in the colon wall and become infected or swollen causing pain, cramping, diarrhea, constipation or fever.
