My stool was green and grey, What does it indicates ?

Last time I went to the bathroom my stool was green and grey. Not a mixture of the two, but some parts were green and others were grey, almost white. What does this mean? I m a 27 year old female. Was just at the doctor due to unexplained weight loss , and he told me I was healthhy. He ran blood tests and took a stool sample. I m on the generic form of welbutrin(spelling?) and also take vitamins daily. I m 5 3 and weigh 103 lbs. I recently lost about 15lbs. I don t know why, I eat the same I always have. My doctor said it s probably stress/ depression . I do have chronic night sweats as well. Wake up soaked almost every night. Other than that I ve always been healthy. Cancer does run in both sides of my family. My mom passed from it. All 4 grandparents had a form of it, and 3 other of my aunts and uncles have had it.

Hi welcome to healthcare magic forum

Cancer is common at older age not at your age.. there are many reasons for grey and dark color stool, acute gastritis can have mild bleeding in stomach which will result in grey or black colored stool... green colored stools are due to infections and indigestion.. do not worry much about cancer at this age..
