Can anucort rectal supossitories reduce swelling of an anal/rectal polyp or tumor?

I don't think so. Anucort reduces inflammation in the body.

Hydrocortisone rectal is used to treat itching or swelling caused by hemorrhoids or other inflammatory conditions of the rectum or anus.

Hydrocortisone rectal is also used together with other medications to treat ulcerative colitis, proctitis, and other inflammatory conditions of the lower intestines and rectal area.

Polyps or tumors are not inflammatory conditions, they are outgrowths of tissue. So I don't think Anucort will help.
