I think you are worried about colon cancer. It is very less likely you have it at your age if you don't have family history of colon cancer. You should eat enough vegetables and fruits, drink a lot of liquid, and exercise such as walking in the morning. You should see your doctor to have blood sugar checked to rule out diabetes and have an occult fecal blood test. I also recommend you lose weight with diet and exercise.
You could have mild irritable bowel syndrome. You should eat enough food containing fiber such as whole grains, beans, vegetables and fruits, drink a lot of liquid, and exercise such as walking in the morning.
Try to eat enough food containing fiber such as whole grains, beans, vegetables and fruits, and drink a lot of liquid. If it doesn't work in 2 weeks, you should have colonoscopy although colon cancer is very less likely.
Because of your age and family history.
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) besides colon cancer causes narrow stools.
