Food fibers: Undigested fibers in the food are the most likely explanation. It is not a disorder and should not be of any concern. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco or alcohol in any form. Practice safe sex.

Black oil spot in toilet when having bowel movement. On weight watchers eating fish three times a week?
When you say: "black oil spot" the concerning thing it brings to mind is melena: black "tarry" feces associated with upper gastrointestinal bleeding. This is such a concerning sign, that even if it is something else, which it might be, you have to be checked out for upper GI bleeding. Weight Watchers is a good idea; I don't think it has anything to do with eating fish. See you doctor ASAP for eval. Good wishes.
When I wipe I notice little black pepper like flecks on my toilet paper after a bowel movement. What could this be?
I've had lower right pain in my abdomin off and on for several weeks. Last bowel movement looked loose, black fibers almost like chewing tobacco.
Need an exam: I am concerned about the color change of your bowel movement, in association with several weeks of abdominal pain. It is necessary for you to have an abdominal exam plus medical evaluation right away. Lab work and probable CT scan will be ordered. Please take care of yourself. Good luck.
Green stools with little black dots in it also when I wipe, should I be concerned? Scared it could be cancer. 18 yes old and one bowel movement a day.
Cancer not likely: It is highly unlikely that what you described is due to cancer. In fact you stool is probably normal. Unless you have a close family member who got colon cancer in his/her twenties, you do not need to be concerned.
