I keep getting these brown seed like things in my feces. quite small and look like seeds from a apple? is this ok?
Seeds: Review your diet? Have your been eating a lot of apples? If not then it needs evaluation. Seeds from apples contain a compound called amygdalin, a compound which releases toxic cyanide This only happens if the tough outer coat is broken or the seed is crushed, so avoid ingesting the seeds. If intact seeds are noted in the feces it is not likely to be a problem. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is it possible to pass sac-like objects on a stool that look like tapeworm eggs (golden, firm, etc.) but are not? If so, what are the possibilities?
Tapeworm unlikely: I'm pretty sure you're the same person who has asked several questions about tapeworm, cats, and things you have seen in your stool or your cat's feces. In the US, human tapeworm infestation is rare, and cat tapeworm is espcially unlikley to infect humans. But see your doctor if you remain concerned. A simple stool "ova and parasites" test will tell for sure whether or not you have it. ...Read more
A lot of white seed like thing in stool what could it be? Small, big but smaller than a pumpkin seed. I eat healthy (lot of seeds, chicken,rice)
Mucus with stool??: Could you be describing a coating of white mucus? Patients often report to me seeing mucus as white stringy or seed-like material on and/or in stool. Mucus is a colon lubricant, but when present in large volume it may signal problems with colon spasm (ie. Irritable bowel syndrome), partial obstruction, infection, & even sloughed colon lining due to variety of diseases. Testing is easy--see doc. ...Read more

What are black spots on green beans? Is it mould? Are green beans a source of aflatoxin or is that just peanuts?
Likely over-ripe pod: Black spots on a pod of green beans is likely an indication of over-ripeness and drying, not aflatoxin. More grains than peanut can harbor aflatoxin mold. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, 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

Tons of tiny white dots covering stool. Very tiny looks like salt sprinkled throughout. What could this be? Food?
Would long little pieces of what looks like thread in stool possibly be worms in a toddler? What would worms look like? We got kittens, just concerned
Pinworms/threadworms: Pinworms are white thread like parasites that can live in the large intestines. They only affect humans so kitty is not involved.Kids are exposed to the pinworms through eggs shed by other kids in their play areas.These make it onto their fingers and are ingested, traveling inside where they hatch. Your doc can confirm the diagnosis and guide you with treatment. ...Read more
I noticed that when I eat beets my feces has a red tint that sort of resembles blood. Are there other foods that cause that as well?
Lots...: The color 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. Consider what you ate in the prior few days, but if a reddish color of your stool persists or is accompanied by other symptoms, see your doctor. ...Read more

Anus, just inside is very blue and small whitish like finger looking bumps, stomach pain and constipation. Gross, but what could be ?
Probably a hemorrhoid.: Hemorrhoids are very common. You could probably Google a picture and reassure yourself. The bumps on the other hand really need to be seen. These may be simply skin tags or they made the venereal warts. I suggest you check in with your doctor for a definitive evaluation. ...Read more

What could cause white specks in stool? They're very small, almost like seeds or bits of feta cheese. Rest of stool is brown.
Probably not feta: Feta cheese would not look the same coming out, but sesame and other small seeds do look almost identical in your stool. Otherwise unless you are sick in some way , having unintentional weight loss, blood in stool, then this is unlikely to be significant and almost certainly something you ate. ...Read more
