Sounds right: The symptoms you describe certainly go along with a diagnosis of hemorroids. The specialist you could consult would be a proctologist.

Colonoscopy: Blood in or on the stool is not normal. Although hemorrhoids may be the culprit, complete evaluation includes colonoscopy, which can uncover colitis, fissures, diverticulosis, polyps and cancer as other potential causes of the bleeding.
