Hi, welcome and thanks for writing in.
Squishy lump around anus can be small boil, prolapsed mucus or pile. Sometimes it may not cause any pain or symptoms. You need to consult board certified surgeon for proper clinical examination.
It is not a emergency situations. You can consult on appointment basis. If necessary few investigations like per rectal examination or proctoscopy may be necessary.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have further concern, please let me know.

Could it be hemorrhoids? It seems to appear and be more obvious after I go to the bathroom.

Hi, welcome back.
Piles means haemorrhoids only. It could be haemorrhoids. There are bleeding haemorrhoids or just a prolapse of mucus.
