Yes: Function of the colon is to reabsorb fluid entering the right sided colon from the terminal ileum. The small bowel absorbs nutrients taken by mouth. Liquid in the small bowel passes to colon where liquid is reabsorbed as it passes to the rectum as stool. Rt. colon Ca has liquid passing over it. When solid stool reaches an obstructing left colon tumor it liquefies to be able to pass. ...Read more

I have watery loose stools for over a month now. Could I have pancreatic tumor? I had a colonoscopy 2 years ago and was normal. I am 27.
Probably not: Pancreatic disorders may cause loose stool. They are not the most common cause. In the office, I would suggest a probiotic or yogurt daily as well as citrucel daily.

Stool evaluation at your doctor's office may also help. ...Read more
