Narrow or thin stools
I am just turned 40 and sometimes I have a narrow or thin stools. I have no pain at all. Is this something to be worried about?
It would depend on the duration – if it’s a sudden change, then it may be a sign of something serious. If its been a lifelong symptom, then less likely to be important, but you should still discuss with your physician.
