There is no swelling or extreme pain. But there is bleeding during strained bowel movement. Could this be internal hemorrhoids?

In brief: Yes
Rectal bleeding may be caused by hemorrhoids.
Colonoscopy is the standard of care to evaluate rectal bleeding in people over 40.

In brief: Could
Be internal hemorrhoids as they usually are associated with painless bleeding, could also be a chronic fissure which may alos bleed painlessly.
More importantly one should determine the reason for having to strain to have bm. Probably best to get checked by a GI doctor or a colorectal surgeon.
