Hemorrhoids - swollen veins in your rectum and anus - can affect your body in different ways. The mucus discharge that occurs with some hemorrhoids may make you feel as if you haven't fully emptied your rectum after a bowel movement. In other cases, the hemorrhoids that form around your anus - external hemorrhoids - can collect excess blood, develop a clot, and cause intense pain.
