Your Faecal Occult Blood Test has shown blood in the stool sample you submitted. We test for blood as microscopic quantities of blood can be produced by a polyp or tumour. However, it can equally be produced by internal haemorrhoids, by the use of anti-inflammatory medication or other causes or stomach irritation or by benign bowel inflammation.
As a result of this screening test, you should have a colonoscopy which is more detailed examination of the colon using a camera in order to establish the cause.
Please either contact Doctorcall at www.doctorcall.co.uk to book an appointment with a GP to organise this, or alternatively see your own GP.
