Unhappy water stain on ceiling under bathroom

Help!
I have a 2'x2' water stain on my family room ceiling right below the master bathroom. I've traced down the stain to match/originate from(?) somewhere between the shower tub and the toilet, which is much cooler than the rest of the tiled area, but no idea what the root cause of this is.
What should I do next?

sammyc,

Cut out the stained ceiling area and take a look. It can't get fixed it you don't have access if its a shower drain issue but if its the toilet, maybe a wax ring repalcement is in order. You need to know where it is coming from first. Ceiling is going to have to be repaired anyway.

Good Luck!
