Lightbulb Capilar size stool?

I am worried today.
I have been having some hemorrhoids symptoms, which include irritation and burning. I went to the doctor, and he told me to come back 6 weeks later, and gave me psyllium and analpran.
Last night I took psyllium (it was not my first time), this morning I saw a capilar size stool, about 3 inches long in the middle or the normal size ones. I don't see any blood. Could that be anything alarming? I read that color cancer makes the stool thinner than a finger.
I appreciate your opinion. Thank you

I don't think that is anything to worry about. As you take more fiber then your stool should get bigger round.
