Occult Blood Fecal Test

Sample Report
Specimen Type: Stool


A Fecal Occult Blood Test looks for the presence of microscopic or invisible blood in the stool.  Blood in the stool can be a sign of a number of conditions such as 

  • Abnormal growths or polyps in the colon
  • Cancer in the colon or rectum
  • Anemia
  • Hemorrrhoids
  • Intestinal infections
  • Ulcers
  • Crohn's Disease
  • Diverticular Disease

This test is commonly ordered as a routine screening to aid in the early detection of Colon Cancer.  Yearly testing is recommended for people age 50 and above.  This test may also be ordered by people experiencing symptoms of anemia.

Because certain conditions may cause intermittent bleeding, results from multiple specimens may be required for results to be conclusive.  If blood is detected, it is important that a doctor be consulted to determine a diagnosis.  Additional procedures such as a colonoscopy may be required. 

Turnaround time for the Fecal Occult Blood Test is typically 2-4 business days.

Incubation Period:


Customers ordering the Fecal Occcult Blood Test should go to the lab to obtain a proper speciment container prior to collection and review proper collection technique to avoid specimen rejection.
