What types of hemorrhoids are there?

When I am looking up hemorrhoids to find out more information on them I am seeing things like "internal hemorrhoids" and "external hemorrhoids."  I didn't even know there were different types :(  Can someone explain to me the difference?  I thought there was really only one kind.

My Dr told me that there's two types of hemorroids (hemorrhoids).  

Internal Hemorrhoids and
External Hemorrhoids

Hope this helps!

What's the difference though?  Are the symptoms the same for them both?  Would I be able to see the external ones?
