White string like substance in bowel. Worms or IBS?

For the last 3-4 days, I have noticed a white short string-like substance attached to my bowel. I ve heard that it could be worms , it could be IBS , it could be cancer , etc. so, I am concerned. I will be 56 in about a month, am reasonably healthy, haven t eaten noodles... The substance does not move like I would expect a worm to do.
