Bile: The color in stool is mostly due to bile and some ingested materials. Light colored stools may occur if there is obstruction to the flow of bile. Liver cancer is not generally associated with obstruction to the flow of bile. You are too young to worry about liver cancer. People at risk of liver cancer those with chronic Hep B or Hep C infection and alcoholics.
