Do black specs(like tiny pepper flakes) in the stool indicate blood even when the stool in a normal brown color?
Nah: Significant blood loss (more than 3-4 ounces of blood), especially from upper sources, e.g. Stomach, duodenum , small bowel, less likely from right colon, can give black, tarry stol, with a typically characteristic odor, often loose (blood is a laxative):melena (black). Entire stool would be black, not just individual spots. Likely from food, seeds. Iron pills, pepto bismol (bismuth subsalicylate) can do also. ...Read more

Hello! I've noticed dark brown/black-ish colored flecks in my (clear) urine. They are thin and flat, and sink to the bottom of the toilet. Help??
You need an exam: In a woman, these could be small vaginal blood clots. Could be "products of conception". Unless something has been introduced into your bladder, I really can't think of anything else that could behave this way. You need a pelvic exam and a urinalysis and a pregnancy test.. ...Read more

White fluffy mucut, red blood. And small white dots in runny stool once a month what can this be?
Good question, but..: Blood in stool is a warning sign. Brisk bleeding warrants emergency care. Causes of bleeding may be predictable (e.G anorectal trauma), but evaluation is always appropriate. A rule of thumb (but not absolute): black stool means bleeding comes from upper GI tract; grape jelly stool from small bowel; silver stool from biliary tree; burgundy stool from right colon; red blood from left colon to anus. ...Read more
Everytime I use the toilet 1-2 balls of stool exit &when I wipe the tissue is covered w/a watery brown (almost mucus like at times)substance.Serious?
Most likely not: This sounds like mucorrhea. This is not serious in of itself but is there any blood? The fact that you have this every time might be related to what you eat or could relate to irritable bowel. I would suggest that you discuss with your doctor so that it can be further defined and make sure you have nothing serious. ...Read more
