6. Pencil Stools:
The name says it all. ‘Pencil’ stools are narrow and long. If you suddenly notice these in place of what you normally see, it could indicate something a lot more sinister. A large tumor in the colon, for example, would block the path of excrements, thereby leading to the pencil-like thinness. However, this may not always be the case, so it’s best to not jump the gun too soon. Instead, visit your physician, get the necessary exams, and wait for the result before you decide to panic. It is important to stay aware of all changes that take place, as this would help you stay safer in the long run.
