Hello im 19 and ive notice a change in my stool color should i be worried it is turning and dark brown color not black ?

Concern but no worry: The amount, color, frequency of stool varies with foods, speed of emptying of the GI tract, medications & supplements ingested, gut flora (unique for each individual), additives (like blood), subtractions (like absent bile), infection, inflammation, & other factors. If stool pattern has changed, is unusual for you, & the change persists, or is accompanied by other symptoms, see your doctor. ...Read more

My stool is green and black. Should i be worried?

My stool is green and black. Should i be worried?

Possibly.: Green stool can be related to the foods we eat. If green and runny it may be due to transitting the GI tract too quickly. If black and tarry with a foul odor - that would be a cause to worry as that could be related to GI bleeding. Black stools can also be due to certain medications (notably pepto bismal). Regardless, changes to stool habitus warrant assessment. ...Read more

My stool recently was green with looked to be alittle red in it. Should I be worried only symptoms is dizziness?

Am I hearing U right: Concern is particularly great if your stools contain blood AND you are dizzy. Maybe these two issues are unrelated, or perhaps the volume of blood is only small & not clinically significant, but the combination scenario you presented us raises the question for a gastrointestinal bleed of uncertain activity. Get checked ASAP. ...Read more

Hi, I recently saw a lump of mucus in my stool but the mucus had a small black bug in it (moving) should I be worried?

Hi, I recently saw a lump of mucus in my stool but the mucus had a small black bug in it (moving)  should I be worried?

No worries: Hi I don't think you need to worry about bugs living in your intestinal tract. If the bug was alive and moving around, I would suspect that it got in there from the bathroom or around the cracks of the toilet seat. Insects are not known to be able to live and breed inside the human digestive tract. Hope this helps ...Read more

I just recently noticed I have small black chunks in my stool.. Like Chocolate chips.. I don't have stomach pain and my stool is normal in color.

Concerning: This is concerning for internal bleed. Since not diffuse in the stool, bleeding is not likely above the large bowel. Since it may be clotted or partially digested blood, not likely in the distal colon or rectum. Discuss with a physician as the rest of your medical history is critical here. You may need to have blood tests done and maybe even a colonoscopy. ...Read more

Should I be worried that I think I saw blood in my stool? I went to the bathroom last week and saw a small amount of a bright red coating on my poop (

A little worried: Seeing blood in/on stool should never be ignored. If it is bright red, that suggests it has come from a source near the rectal outlet...typically an internal or external hemorrhoid. The darker it is, the farther up into the bowel is the expected source: black/"tarry" stool suggests bleeding all the way up in the stomach. If only one instance, treat symptoms of hemorrhoids. If recurs, see your Doc. ...Read more

I've been worried about a mole on my foot that keeps changing colour. I noticed it in last Christmas when it was raised, yellow and lieu colours. Now it's more like black with red edging. Should I be worried?

See a dermatologist: Any mole that is changing color should be evaluated by a doctor. You could see your doctor or a dermatologist that specializes in moles. Chances are good they will biopsy the area to look microscopically to see if it is concerning. It is difficult to say just based on your description. Could be nothing but is worth getting evaluated sooner rather than later. ...Read more

Do not worry: Your stool is okay. 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, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more
