In brief: Rarely
Nasal polyposis is a benign inflammatory disease that arises from the lateral wall of the nose and usually causes nasal obstruction and if large enough causes anosmia (decrease in smell).
These grape-like swollen tissues rarely if ever cause pain. If you have pain with nasal polyps, you may have sinusitis, which may be painful. See an ENT physician.
