Are there different types of hemorrhoids?
Hemorrhoids can be categorized as internal or external. Internal hemorrhoids are located inside the anus, while external hemorrhoids are found outside the anus. Internal hemorrhoids can also sometimes fall out of the anus. These are called prolapsed hemorrhoids; they can be very painful and require surgical treatment.
