Question: Hi. I am passing black color stool. Is it something to worry?

Answer: Hello dear. If you are taking iron supplements then that can cause black stool. Most cases of black stools are from eating black foods or iron supplements. The most common condition causing black stools is a bleeding ulcer. Black stools caused by blood indicate a problem in the upper digestive tract. If blood in the stool is suspected, youshould contact your doctor as soon as possible. Hope it helps.
