Here are some ...: The shape of stool reflects the interaction between anal tone, its ring shape, and stool softness/hardness. The softer the stool, the more likely to see flat stool of various degrees; the harder, the rounder. So, this alone requires no need to see Doc. But, bladder cancer requires a lifelong surveillance; don't miss it.
