Only an issue if you ONLY have pencil width stools.That indicates the rectum is partially blocked, usually by a tumor.But that is only if that is the ONLY kind you have. If you ever have wider stools it is from spasms, or not enough bulk in the diet, or your colon moved things to fast so they don't have a chance to accumulate in the rectum and get wider..K.
