can internal hemorrhoids cause mild but constant burning in my anus not associated with bowel movements? if not, what else? occasional blood on stool

Anal symptoms: Such discomfort is more typical of mild inflammation of the rectum(proctitis) or anal fissure. Internal hemorrhoids can cause bright red blood in the stool. I feel a proctologist is very helpful in evaluating and treating this type of symptom.
