This is Dr. David
anal hemorrhoids are much much much more common in the area than anal polyp
anal hemorrhoids will shrink down and calm down with steroid creams like 1% hydrocortisone cream used on the hemorrhoid for 1-2 times a day for 2 weeks.
polyps usually will not shrink with steroid cream use.
best to see a doctor and get the area evaluated.
hurting all day long can be a sign it is infected or swollen
you can try over the counter 1% hydrocortisone cream on the area and see if it shrinks
