I am female, 69 years old, I had stools tested two times, they were negative. I am not anemic nor do I have appetite loss.

Hello.. I have the seen the image and analyzed the clinical history points which you have provided.

This looks like a normal fecal matter pellet and smooth lined.

But internally it might be a cyst.

As you are not anemic and no other symptoms and moreover stool routine has been inconclusive twice I suggest that you can be rest assured please.

So as of now we can wait.

Hope I have attended to your query to your satisfaction.

Is there anything else where I can be of assistance to you please.

Kind regards ***** ***** Sumanth Amperayani

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
