Could hemorrhoids and hard stools cause bumps in the anal canal?

Depends. Constipation and straining with bowel movements can lead to hemorrhoids and anal fissure over time. Bumps is a vague term, so getting in touch with your doc for details will be helpful. Sometimes an exam under anesthesia with biopsy is indicated. Be well.
