In brief: Yes

Internal hemorrhoids are derived from normal anatomical structures called anal cushions.
They are located just inside the anal canal, and help to prevent the leakage of stool whenever abdominal pressure is increased. If the cushions become stretched out or irritated, they are called hemorrhoids. Excessive coughing increases abdominal pressure, leading to hemorrhoid formation.
