If you like to spend hours on the toilet checking your phone and scrolling down Instagram, you might want to think twice because it cause serious health problems!

Doctors stare that this millennial issue could give you hemorrhoids, which are lumps around your butt.

The issue comes from the length of time spent on the toilet which typically correlated with those of us who use our phones to pass the time.

Dr Sarah Jarvis, Clinical Director of patient.info told   The Sun that, “Constipation and straining to poo is a major risk factor for piles – being pregnant, chronic cough and getting older also factor.”

“But so too does prolonged sitting on the loo. And while in the past, some of us took a good book into the toilet with us, these days it’s more likely to be the ever-present mobile phone.”

“So tempting while it may be to scroll through your apps while you’re waiting to perform, doctors don’t recommend it.”

We might have to keep our phones away from the bathroom!
