Couldn't find what you looking for?


I am 19 years old and off and on quit often i find small black balls in my stool what is it? could it be dangerous?



I think that there are few reasons for black balls in your stool. First of all these could be some old remains of blood.  And that can be consequence of some gastrointestinal problem which needs to be checked by a doctor.

Second reason for black balls in your stool can be eating a lot of iron but this isn’t a big deal. It means that you don’t digest certain types of food very well.

And maybe this is a consequence of hemorrhoids or some other condition which can be easily treated. But the only way you can find out the answer is to check with your doctor. I hope that this will end positive for you. Good luck and keep us posted.
