Question: Small lump of what seems to be like tissue in my poop.


 usnmlg99 - Sun Nov 18, 2007 8:57 am

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.

User avatar Hi Usnmlg99,

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.

Best wishes.
