If the test is positive does it mean that there is colon cancer?

In case of finding traces of blood, it can be a sign of cancer or of the existence of ulcer or polyps in the internal wall of the colon and rectum. Even so, finding hidden blood does not imply that the patient will suffer from colon cancer.

In these cases, a colonoscopy should be performed to determine the origin of the bleeding (haemorrhoids, polyps, tumour…).

How often should the test be performed?

The faecal occult blood test should be performed every two years. Especially, women and men from 50 years.
In those patients with a family history of colorectal cancer, the test should begin beforehand, at the same time as reviews with the digestive system specialist.
