Is this a pile?

There is a fleshy growth around the entrance to my anus which I can’t see very well. The growth is not painful nor bloody but it is usually there especially after going to the toilet. My friends say it is pile while others think it could be something more serious. Please help me.

From your description, the growth looks like a pile. However, there are a number of abnormalities  in the anus such as warts and anal cancer among others that may mimic a pile. For this reason, to be on the safe side, it will be good for you to allow a doctor to take a look at your anus for a proper diagnosis and adequate treatment.
