Internal Hemorrhoids - Found inside the rectum, this type of
hemorrhoid is usually painless as rectal tissues lack nerve fibers, but
will cause bright red bleeding during bowel movement.
Prolapsed Hemorrhoids - Prolapsed hemorrhoids can become thrombosed
meaning the protruding clots can no longer recede back into the rectum.

and is now protruding outside the anus. Usually there will also be
