They are highly contagious and may even spread across different parts of the body on the infected person alone. Male genital hemorrhoids are comparatively easy to identify. They usually occur on the external part of the body, like tip or shafts of the penis, on the scrotum or around the anus. Male genital hemorrhoids have also been found on the thighs or groin area.

Having multiple sex partners has also lead to wide spread of this disease.
