Yes, get checked.: If you have hemorrhoids, you likely have bleeding, pain, and you can have a rectal mass. These are classic for hemorrhoids, anal fissure (s), and possibly rectal cancer. This is a big reason why hemorrhoids should be checked and treated. They can be external, can clot, and are painful. Fortunately, there are treatments, like sclerotherapy, ligation, and surgical removal, so see dr./get checked. ...Read more

I found out I have four large internal hemorrhoids (they prevented the passage of stool and I ended up in the ER). Could they also change stool shape?

Yes&No, hemorrhoids: Are stretched-out/varicose veins (either above or below the anal sphincter muscles) which connect the veins of the lower colon with veins of the skin collecting blood for return to the heart. Assuming no clots, the distending volume is simply blood & probably softer than feces. If the vein contains clots (& scarred down old clots) then greater stiffness & associated effect on fecal shape. ...Read more
