IF your husband has hemorrhoids and it started to bleed, chances are there may be an underlying problem with it. I do not think this is a vein but does your husband suffer from hard stools or constipation? Is it painful?

My advice is to go seek medical help quickly. One article here,  bleeding hemorrhoids, may be able to answer part of your question.

However, your family doctor should be able to advice what is the next course of action.
