I have a squishy soft lump on my anus. From researching, it sounds like hemorrhoids but could also be anal warts. How can i tell which?

I do not know if I have anal warts or hemmorhoids. I have uniformed protusions that look red/purplish and I have anal itching, and blood on tissue?
I've been using Anusol for 3 weeks but internal anal warts I feel keep growing. Why? Doctor said non cancerous. Did I get another cancerous strain?
