Here's a link to a leaflet that might be relevant to your case: http://www.stmarkshospital.org.uk/uploads/content/AnalWarts.pdf
Even though you might not have a cancer diagnosis now, it looks like you should try to have these growths removed as soon as possible, because they, like polyps, can become cancerous over time if not treated.
About the large, golf-ball size lump, you might ask the doctor if some kind of imaging diagnostic could be done to identify what the lump is. They have a range of imaging diagnostics, from ultrasound, to MRI, to CT-scan, to PET-scan. I would imagine that there would be some kind of non-invasive diagnostic test that could be done to help identify the problem.
