    big stool then thin stool

    i got a question that i hope i can get a responce to. in has to do with having thin stools, which i know could very well be a sign of colon cancer. during a bowl movement if a person were to have a big stool, then later have a thin pencil like stool, do you think it could be ruled out that a tumor is NOT causing the stool to be THIN???? since you had a big normal stool seconds earlier,

    please reply, i need to ease my mind of this fear.

    I think it is pretty unlikely that you would have cancer... unless you have other symptoms as well. For example, any bleeding? If so, what color? Where? How often? Family history?

    Otherwise, it is perfectly normal to have a bigger stool and then pass smaller stool.
