In brief: No
Internal hemorrhoids, those above the dentate line are usually painless.
However, rectal bleeding should be evaluated by your primary care provider. Also, avoid straining, sitting on toilet for long periods, and ensure you stay hydrated- consider stool softeners.

In brief: No
External ones tend to itch.
Painful hemorrhoids need examined.
