Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)

A fecal occult blood test (FOBT) is a medical test used to detect the presence of hidden (occult) blood in the stool. FOBT is used as a screening test for colorectal cancer and other diseases of the gastrointestinal tract.

Fecal occult blood tests (FOBT) are used to check for hidden blood in the stool. FOBT is used to screen for colorectal cancer and other conditions.

FOBT may be used to screen for:
-Colorectal cancer
-Anal fissures
-Hemorrhoids
-Polyps
-Ulcerative colitis
-Crohn's disease

If you are 50 years of age or older, you should take a Fecal Occult Blood Test (FOBT) every year. If you have a family history of colorectal cancer, you may need to start testing sooner than age 50. Your doctor will let you know how often to take the test based on your individual risk factors.

Normal results are negative, which means there is no blood in the stool. If the test is positive, it may be due to bleeding from colorectal cancer or another condition such as hemorrhoids. Further testing is needed to confirm the diagnosis.

There are a few things you can do to lower your Fecal Occult Blood Test results.

  • The first thing you should do is increase the amount of fiber in your diet. Fiber will bind to the occult blood in your stool and make it less detectable. Foods high in fiber include fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.
  • You should also avoid foods that can cause gastrointestinal bleeding, such as spicy foods, alcohol, and aspirin. If you are still having trouble lowering your Fecal Occult Blood Test results, talk to your doctor about other options.

Second, you should have a light breakfast on the day of the test. You should not eat or drink anything else after breakfast. This is because you need to provide a stool sample within six hours of your last meal.
