    did a google search for narrow stools .....

    I did a google search for narrow stools .....and it is always listed as a symptom of colon cancer.

    Is this exclusive to colon cancer? To have thin narrow stools ? Does anyone else have them ?

    I have them all the time. Can this be caused by UC ?

    I need to know. Who else out there has narrow pencil thin stools?

    Anyone out there having them from Colitis or some other non-cancerous disease?

    I am getting very very Worried

    UC can cause thin stools too because of the improper contractions of the colon. I'm certain you see a gastro who dx your UC. Next time you see him/her, hopefully within a month or so, mention it to them and ask for another colonoscopy to make sure you don't have other issues going on. I don't know when your last scope was??? But follow up with your gastro.

    Best of luck,

    Any benign growth that obstructs the lower rectum can also cause narrow stool.

    Scope time!
