I have small white corn size (maybe slightly bigger) lumps in my stool.  I have no other health issues.  Should I be concerned?

Hard to tell: Stool texture (regardless of volume or frequency of movements) is defined by the bristol stool scale (bss), which ranges from 1 (hard, pellet stool) to 7 (loose, watery stool).

In the back wall of the inside of my vagina I dont find any lumps but there's first a thin wall where I can feel stool and above I feel a thicker am tougher wall opposite the cervix. Is that normal?

I saw melted cheddar cheese that i ate in my stool. I also have stabbing pains in abdomen and lumps in rectum? What are the causes?

Need more info: It is unlikely that melted cheddar cheese made it through your intestine unchanged. However, cheese does lead to constipation in a large number of people which can cause abdominal pain. Constipation can also cause thrombosed external hemorrhoid presenting as lumps at the anus. ...Read more
