Josh asks:

I recently noticed that there was an indentation in my poops. Its not
very deep, but it is noticeable and runs along the entire length of my poop.
What could be causing this? I've never noticed it before, and I always
look at my poop.


Dear Josh,

Something is apparently sticking out in the passage as the poop passes by. Since the indentation is visible down the entire length of the poo, I think it would be safe to assume that whatever is in the way is probably close to the rectum, since the poop has to have been fairly well formed already for this to be clearly visible.

It could be an internal hemorrhoid that has swollen and hardened enough to scrape off the poop instead of bursting open and bleeding all over it.

The other possibility is that it is a polyp or tumor somewhere along the intestinal lumen, most likely in the colon or rectum. These can be benign or cancerous and need to be investigated by a doctor as soon as possible to determine which, and what type of treatment is needed.

A trip to the doctor is definitely called for in this case. Any time something is interfering with the finished product of your poop factory, it is time for an inspection of the plant.

Thanks for asking Motherload!

Even though the answer to most questions people ask of Motherload is "go see your doctor," it's actually very interesting to see exactly what constitoots a poomergency.

I honestly didn't know that having oddly shaped poop could be a sign of a major problem. Sure is a good thing Motherload's so smart.

I would go with the hemmy explanation for this one. Even if you aren't having any blood, it could be a swollen spot that may some day pop. As Motherload says, it might be a good idea to get it looked at. Even if it's not serious, the blood explosion can be startling and you might want some advanced warning before you panic.

You should think twice, Josh, before engaging in a drive-by turding. The local police may be able to identify you by the rifling of your poop cannon.

Wow. This is the EXACT question I was going to submit. There must be a rash of indented poop going around.

I think I could believe the 'roid explanantion causing the dent in the poop log. I'd hope it's nothing more serious than that. An inspection by the sphincter meter reader is definitely in order!

Apparently one of the poop factory employees are upset, and is sabotaging the poop as it is being exported. My advice is to see a doctor. Once the problem is found, poop factory management will charge the culprit with ass-ault, and eventual discharge.

Thanks for this site. I also have indentations in my poop. I starts at the top and goes all the way to the bottom. I noticed a few weeks back but it is not always there just sometimes. I think it may be a 'roid?

Hello, Pooperpatrol and AC 7/4: We don't know what is misshaping your poop. It may be a 'rhoid, it may not; we can't examine your stool, nor can we examine your anus or rectum. Your doctor can, and should. Your symptom may indicate something serious--or not. See your doctor to find out. Don't be embarrassed; be concerned enough to go.

I wanted to post a happy ending comment. I found this site a couple of months ago when I had some symtoms of anal cancer. I had thin stool, itching, and I also found a lump on a couple of occasions. I was scared to death for months. Scanning the internet scared me even more although I appreciated the good humor on this site. I was too scared/nervous to even tell a doctor about my symtoms and for 6 months I believed I was dying. I was too scared to just tell the doctor about it but finally I did and I have cleared of any cancer. I still have thin shit but the moral of the story is go to the doctor right away and not only can they help you if it is cancer, it's more likely not and you won't go through months of depression thinking you're dying when you're not. I have a hemeroid- still not clear why shit is thin but maybe from stress... thanks for the friendly posts

Jamie Blue.......I am glad that you only had a hemorrhoid and hope you have learned a lesson from your experience. Your asshole is a very important part of your body and deserves the best of care, unfortunately it is situated in a location that makes it very difficult to self inspect.

I have no qualms whatsoever about exposing my old fat ass to my primary care physician and even allow him to stick fingers and optical instruments up there to see what's going on. If you are married there is nothing wrong with asking your significant other to take a look at your O-ring and to return the favor if asked. I don't think that is in the usual wedding vows, but it should be.

Do you______take ______ to be your lawfully wedded wife/husband and promise to look up her/his asshole if he/she thinks they have cancer?

What a demonstration of true love.

I have been thinking about making some sort of different shaped devices to insert up the poo shute to extrude novelty logs. You could have star shaped or square or even animal shapes. Do you think this would catch on ?

There is already some sort of turd shaper available; check elsewhere on this site, or elsewhere on the net, and you can probably find it.

These indentations are called "Hoovers Grooves" they are formed when the poop passes by an enlarged prostate.

Did you find you're answer to what caused these grooves?
