Is there any pain in the lump?

What do you mean by 'internal bleeding', is the bleeding coming out of the anus? Does it come with stool?

Expert:  Dr. P. Jyoti replied 4 years ago.
You are likely to be having external hemorrhoids. These are dilated blood vessels on the outside of your anus containing blood. There are also several other causes of rectal bleeding, but from your description hemorrhoids seems to be the most likely.

You need to see your doctor to confirm that it is hemorrhoids. A simple clinical examination will be sufficient to confirm this. If it is not hemorrhoids, it could be some other condition for which yo will need more investigations.

External hemorrhoids or piles are usually associated with internal piles also.

Haemorrhoids is a common problem and there are any number of remedies, including quack ones, for this. But there are several tried and tested methods that you can use at home and drugs which are available over the counter which will give you relief. But you should consult a doctor first before trying anything out to confirm that it is a hemorhoid. All cases of blood in stools needs to be examined by a doctor immediately.
