Question about "flat" stools

Hi everyone.. I'm a 28 year old female. Back in December, I remember having flat, narrowed stools for maybe a couple days to a week then went back to normal. I thought they were weird but forgot about them after going back to normal. I was just now browsing and came across symptoms of colon cancer and saw this as a symptom and now I'm nearly scared to death and have managed to just about worry myself sick. I'm sitting here kicking myself for not saying something to my doctor. I even saw my doctor the same week that I noticed the stools! I saw her about a hemorroid I've had since being pregnant with my son and never even thought to ask about the stools. I'm actually going back to see her tomorrow for another look at the hemorroid so I will absolutely say something then but in the mean time, I'm scared to death and worry that I may have colon cancer and that I ignored a symptom from 8 months ago.

Re: Question about "flat" stools

I hope you appointment today goes well. Chances are it is not colon cancer but there is no advantage to stressing out over the past. You can't change what took place then but you are following up now...that's what is important. Hugs.
