Brief Answer:
As detailed below.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your feedback.
This looks to be prolapsing hemorrhoid.
Please try to push it back after applying Preparation H ointment as you have it.
It will remain inside only if the coughing is controlled with appropriate medications under your Doctor's evaluation and prescription as coughing has stayed long enough.
You can go to your Doctor if can see him/her today, otherwise to ER; they can help you to reduce the mass if not possible by you.
Once settled, consult a Proctologist or a General Surgeon for proper evaluation of the condition and proper curative treatment.

I hope this answers your query and helps you in decision making.
Take care.
With Regards.
