World Piles Day today
World Piles Day will be observed in the country and elsewhere across the globe today.
Bangladesh Society of Colorectal Surgeons and Department of Colorectal Surgery of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University (BSMMU) have chalked out different programmes on this occasion.
On the occasion, a discussion will also be held at Dr Shaheed Milan Hall at BSMMU at 11:00pm on Saturday.
One third of Bangladesh's people aged between 20 and 80 suffer from piles sometimes in their life, according to physicians who identify pain at passing stools, slight bleeding in the case of internal trouble, and feeling of soreness and irritation after passing a stool as symptoms of piles.
