In brief: Have him evaluated

Hemorrhoids are very rare in children and it may be that this is not the correct diagnosis.
He needs to be evaluated. He may have rectal prolapse or a pilonidal abscess or another diagnosis that cannot be made with examination.

In brief: All

All of the symptoms and signs you described should be cause for concern and warrant investigation by a doctor. Children are usually very aware of their own bodies and when something is not quite right.
In addition to a doctor evaluating him (examining his rectum and genitalia) you have to consider social issues. Is he having anxiety or depression for any reason? Is he being bullied? Are there problems in the home or at school? Often times these types of situations can cause children to have actual physical symptoms. Please have him evaluated right away. Good luck.
