I'm a 21 yr male, I'm a pretty stocky guy 5'7 190lbs. After using the restroom today I noticed what seemed to be a perfectly rectagular peice of flesh in my poop. Now that I recall I remember it happening about 6 months or so ago also. I'm kind of nervous because I'm sure it can't be to healthy.

I'm not exactly sure what you saw but it may have been a polyp that had become dislodged. Having an occasional polyp in the intestines is fairly common; however, there are some conditions associated with polyps that can increase the risk of colon cancer.
I'd suggest you talk with your doctor about this and possibly see a GI specialist.
