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. You may also have a food allergy or sensitivity, consider keeping a food diary to track triggers. Medications frequently cause diarrhea- not sure you take any. Stool evaluation at your doctor's office may also help. ...Read more

Possibly IBS: And, if it is, you're fortunate it's not a problem during the day too. That's a good sign that it may be easier than some to treat. The mention of anxiety is also a good sign that if you can get it and the stress in your life under some good management it will be much better. Consider CBT therapy to address skills to avoid, reduce and manage anxiety - also carefully look at your diet. Best wishes! ...Read more
