How to tell if Hemorrhoid, Skin Tag, or Papilla?

Hi all,

I am new to this and wondering how you can tell the difference between an external hemorrhoid, a prolapsed internal, a skin tag, or a anal papilla??

What I have is a small, soft, pink and fleshy looking (about the size of a raisin, kinda flattened, similar to a little tongue for lack of a better explanation), that appears to be coming out of my anus. It does not bleed and doesn't appear to have any type of discharge or mucous. Its sore if I touch it too hard. It does not itch. Its uncomfortable, and I feel like a pressure feeling and it feels like my tailbone hurts.

Just trying to figure out exactly what the heck this is.
