This can be from any number of problems. You should have an evaluation by a gastroenterologist. You may have colits or a tumor. Could be a weakness in your anal sphincter

There can be several causes of lack of stool control. Please talk with your primary care doctor about the need to see a gastroenterologist about this problem. One of the physicians at Indianapolis Gastroenterology and Hepatology would be glad to help with the evaluation of this problem.
